Watch List: 'Wild Horses' Won't Stop Layla Zoe
Packing a powerhouse vocal that is positively Joplin-esqe with its gritty intensity and profound resonance, Canada's Layla Zoe embodies the essence of the classic 60's blues/rock sound with an instinctive fire and passion. Adorning her body with tattoos of her heroes - Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters and Neil Young - Zoe reaches deep into her soul to pull up the rawest of emotion with the kind of unaffected authenticity that is as pure as it is honest. Able to generate throat-shredding power with ease, here Zoe showcases her ability to tease out the emotional essence of a lyric with a heart-felt, richly moving rendition of 'Wild Horses'.
Learning her love for the blues from her father's record collection, Zoe's strong work ethic has seen her release seven albums as she has gone about building a highly regarded reputation on the Canadian and European blues scenes. Making a name for herself on festival stages and blues clubs in Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Poland, Zoe recently followed her 2013 album, 'The Lily', with the 'Live At Spirit Of 66' album.
