about

Poignant lyrics abound in this track, Nothing to See which was on our specially commissioned DOWNTOWN compilation and Zoe's music has been present on our two previous compilation releases over the last couple of years. Zoe was the youngest performer to grace the main stage at Folkstock Festival when she was just 16. She released her debut EP Pandora's Box with us in 2014 and it is hoped some more recordings will follow soon. Written by Zoe Wren and produced by Tristano Galimberti this will further enhance Zoe’s growing reputation which sees her invited to perform at Cambridge Folk Festival by Hitchin Folk Club this summer, 2016.
Having just completed the first year of a music degree at Cambridge University, Zoe is certainly attracting attention having supported various artists including Peter Knight's Gigspanner at Cambridge Folk Club and Jim Causley at Hitchin Folk Club, as a result of winning the Best Newcomer award at Folkstock's Love Folk Live Awards. FATEA Magazine featured Zoe in their Autumn Showcase 2014 and her first headline gig was a sell out at Redbourn Folk Club in the summer of 2015. Powerful and pervasive, her songs hook you from the first line. "It takes an especially strong new voice to rise above the general hubbub of the current English folk song flashmob... Zoe showcases a maturing voice and songs that have depth to match their indisputable charm". "blending a finesse voice with the soothing tones of acoustic strumming...tantalising .. lashings of potential to work the cross genre songbook. She can sing quite comfortably in the classical traditional style and still retain a contemporary charm to captivate the listener".

lyrics

I'm just waiting for the smoke to clear
Surely there's a way to get out of here
But really in the scheme of things
I'm just a grain of sand

Take all you have
Cause it was all for nothing
I'm not going back
Got to believe in something
Walk into the same old room
With surprise that nothing's changed
And everything
Is blown away in the wind

I'm just waiting for the threads to tie
Looking out the window straight past the sky
But it all keeps you rolling down the hill
Just like a stone

And the ship is going under
As the world looks over its shoulder
But the clouds will part for no one
When there's nothing left to light up anymore

Take all you have
Cause it was all for nothing
I'm not going back
Got to believe in something
Walk into the same old room
With surprise that nothing's changed
And everything
Is blown away in the wind
And now there's nothing left
Nothing but the dust

But it's cold out in the rain
These strange dreams keep on coming back again
The last chance was blown
Out on the breeze
Just a whisper in the air
But there's nothing to see out there

The clouds will part for no one
When there's nothing left to light up anymore
But it's cold out in the rain
These strange dreams keep on coming back again
The last chance was blown
Out on the breeze
Just a whisper in the air
But there's nothing to see out there
