Song writer / Producer of music and events (Live & Electric) / Production Manager

Zoe is a music and theatre professional, specialising in production and composition. Originating from the UK, Zoe's passion for music and theatre developed at a young age, as she began as a singer, performer and learning to play instruments. At the age of 8, Zoe was the youngest member at her local library's poetry club. It was this taste for writing, combined with her passion for music that led Zoe to songwriting and earning her a single in the top 3 of the iTunes Country Charts. 

Her creativity and passion for songwriting led to Zoe discovering and developing her talents for producing. Keen to develop a different and unique sound with any song she produces, is what makes Zoe's work distinctive.  An eclectic taste in music and broad interest in different genres drives Zoe to experiment with different sounds and techniques for each song she works on. 

Along with Zoe's songwriting and music production work, she is a singer who performs regularly (www.zoemusic.co.uk) and she also produces music and theatre events. Zoe is the producer of the "Live & Electric" events, which showcases talented performers from different areas of music and theatre, as they perform with a live house band at Rosehill Theatre.

Lee is a musician and recording professional. He specialises in recording and production. Originating from the UK, Lee has been performing his whole life. As a child he learnt both guitar and piano, completing some accredited grades. At the age of 14 he began performing in his first band and hasn't stopped performing since.

His passion for music led him to begin working as a Studio Engineer from the age of 16 at The Music Farm Recording Studio. Working here at this age assisted in building Lee's knowledge and skills in producing albums. Lee's work at the studio included engineering for guitar legend Albert Lee.

Lee's skills as a recording engineer and producer, without a doubt, make him in demand. His work often takes him all over the country and international; recording and producing songs, EPs and albums for a wide range of clients.
