and check out Zoe on tour at a venue near you. Zoe has records that have gone platinum and has been nominated for a number

has an impressive history, having formed in Mexico City in the early to mid 1990s. While the band had a relatively shaky start
with a high turnover of members, it started to find footing on stage nearing the end of the decade. The band even began to
formulate a sound that was influenced by aspects of Britpop and Seattle's "grunge" period during the 1990s. It is thought
that the Beatles have been a heavy influence in the band's sound. The band self-published a demo and worked hard to gain recognition
by word-of-mouth. In 1998, Zoe signed its first recording deal, but it didn't prove to be fruitful. It was not until the band
released its debut album independently in 2000 that it was able to catch the attention of Sony Music. The record company took
over the distribution of the album, after popular songs like "Asteroide" and "Miel" started to become hits off the independent
recording. The album continued to find great success with songs being placed in films. Some of the movies include: Amar Te
Duele, Ladies Night and The Dreamer. Having signed with Sony Music in 2001, the band released its second album, Rocanlover,
in 2003. Phil Vinall, who worked with the artists like Placebo and Elastica, produced the album. This album included the singles:
"Peace and Love," "Love" and "Veneno." By the second album, Zoe's sound was distinctive and unique for its genre by mixing
of both Spanish and English lyrics.
In 2004, Zoe left Sony and attempted to continue
its projection on its own by touring and promoting its singles off of Rocanlover. It was not long before the band started
to work on an EP and recorded the single "Dead" on its own. Zoe signed a record deal with Noiselab, which was independent
record label from Mexico. The band released an EP that was well received and the band played sold out shows at a popular venue
in Mexico City. Zoe continued to play venues across the nation and festivals like Vive Latino festival. The band shifted its
concentration to its next album. They worked with British producer Phil Vinall. The album, Memo Rex Commander y el Corazon
Atomico de la Va Lactea (Memo Rex Commander and the Atomic Heart of the Milky Way), was released and hit number 1 on the music
charts in Mexico. The first single was played on MTV Latin America and Telehit. The next album, Reptilectric, continued to
find similar success to the earlier ones and even landed them a set at Coachella to support its release. Zoe has continued
to receive wonderful reviews and even released an MTV Unplugged album, Musica de Fondo. The album embraced aspects of the
earlier psychedelic bands and provided new interpretations of their hit songs. The band continues to receive accolades for
their sounds and have even reached gold status Colombia. Zoe is on tour now promoting its fifth studio album, Programaton.
The current lineup touring the United States are Leon Larregui (vocals, guitar), Sergio Acosta (guitar), Jesus Baez (keyboards),
Angel Mosqueda (bass) and Rodriogo Guardiola (drums).
Zoe Live Show Experience
Like most indie-rock bands
that focus on psychedelic rock, it is a great opportunity to see a live show performance. The interesting use of instrumentation
is impressive to see live and there is a nuance to the character of sound and band's vibe that can be fully appreciated in
a live show experience. Zoe has a diverse audience, as it has expanded its reach over the years.
an article for Ground Control magazine, Zoe described its collaborative songwriting process: "We all work together. Sometimes
we first come up with a melody, other times lyrics come first. On all of our albums we have songs in both English and Spanish.
We don't purposefully write the songs in English to try and appeal to a larger audience. Some of the songs just sound better
that way." It is no question that Zoe is the band to see live, as they capture the attention of its audiences of all languages
through the talent that the band shares with its fans.
