Good afternoon everyone and welcome to another Music Monday. Today I’m featuring the fabulous Zoë Wren and her recent album Reckless River.
Zoë is originally from London, where she used to busk on the London underground but she now lives in Switzerland. She is one half of folk duo Roswell but releases solo music too. I first discovered Zoë (you guessed it) through twitch and was immediately blown away by her beautiful voice which is just stunning. Zoe is one of the nicest streamers on twitch as she’s always very welcoming despite having a fast moving chat.

Zoë has written some truly wonderful music which is perfect for relaxing to. Her music is mainly folk songs which have some lovely melodies in them. Zoe says her music was influenced by the unorthodox harmonies of Joni Mitchell and the honest storytelling of Tracy Chapman.
I have included the music videos for two of my favourite songs from this album, Smoky Sunrise and Elephant and Drum. These videos were both shot in Zoe’s new home town in Switzerland and contain some absolutely beautiful scenery in them. I’ve also included Don’t Touch My Guitar as it always makes me smile.
You can listen to Zoe’s music on the main streaming platforms or you can purchase it from Bandcamp.
