Zoe Scott is the voice bringing bossa nova music (traditional Brazillian jazz) into the mainstream this Autumn, with the release of lead single ‘Quiet Nights’ from her upcoming album of bossa nova covers, entitled ‘Shades of Love’.
Scott’s voice is laidback and easy to listen to in this beautiful song, which takes traditional bossa nova instrumentation and applies it to a more mainstream song formula, creating a truly tranquil listening experience which may be just what we all need during this difficult year.
Scott’s full album, Shades of Love, is coming soon. It sees her collaborate with Brazilian producer Moogie Canazio – who had 10 Grammy’s with some the finest Brazilian jazz players in the world, including Daniel Jobim the son of Antonio Carlos Jobim (who wrote ‘Girl from Ipanema’). The album includes reimaginings of some of Scott’s best-loved songs from her childhood, including Amy Winehouse’s ‘You Know I’m No Good’ and The Beatles ‘In My Life’.
‘Quiet Nights’ is out now, with ‘Shades of Love’ to follow soon.
