Zoe Konez

ZOE KONEZ is a "wonderful singer, wonderful songwriter, wonderful guitarist" (Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music).  You can hear for yourself on Hayley Don't Say Goodbye from her album Fold The World In Two, or on the single released in May this year, We Got Lost. Zoe and her drummer Will last played in Nottingham at the world-famous Guitar Bar. This is a rare chance to see one of London's best-kept secrets.
