BIG… BAD… BOOM!!!
THAT’S THE SENSATION YOU FEEL WHEN THIS LOUD, DYNAMIC, OVER THE TOP WOMAN HITS THE STAGE.
ZOOM IS OLD SCHOOL, NEW SCHOOL, AND EVERYTHING THE BLUES SHOULD BE….
RAW, REAL, HONEST AND SINCERE!!!
Zoom was born on a small farm in Romulus Michigan, but has cut a path to stages all over the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.
She was introduced to the blues at 3 years old and in the late 70’s, she saw Koko Taylor for the first time. That experience of seeing and hearing Koko’s raw tone changed her life.
Hitting the road in the 90’s and gaining recognition, she was invited to join prestigious Chicago Blues Tours across Europe. Sharing the stage with some of her idols like Koko Taylor, Bobby Bland, Albert King, James Cotton, Junior Wells, John Primer, Lucky Peterson, Billy Branch and Maurice
Vaughn just to name a few.
Things were definitely moving up up up, but Zoom made a sudden stop and took a 2 decade hiatus from the music business, to raise her family.
After that time and making the decision to get back in the business, she contacted her old friend, Shawn Kellerman.
In her time away from the music businesss, Shawn had been touring with his own band plus blues greats like Bobby Rush, Sherman Robertson and Lucky Peterson, in over 40 countries.
When Zoom & Shawn reconnected, Shawn had been touring with Lucky Peterson for 8 years and was producing Lucky’s newest album, celebrating Lucky’s 50 years in the business.
Immediately after Shawn completed that project, he and Zoom started trading ideas and writing songs through voice memos over email.
After months of work, Shawn completed the all original musical components for the album and finally got to meet up, face to face with ZOOM, after all those decades, adding her undeniable voice to the music.
Then….well Covid……Zoom and Shawn decided to put the release of the album on hold.
Now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, you can witness ZOOM’s vocal POWER and DRIVE with Shawn’s HIGH ENERGY guitar, that will take a ferocious ride of infectious funk and blues grooves. This will SHAKE it’s listeners TO THEIR CORE…
AND LEAVE THEM BEGGING FOR MORE!
