"Elliot is a storyteller and her music is infused is all sorts of folky goodness which would see her just as comfortable at a small town folk festival as she is warming up a crowd at a trendy inner-city bar. I think what I find most endearing about her live performance is just how expressive she is with her entire performance – there’s constantly an “this is what I love doing” look on Elliot’s face as she sings and you can’t help but be drawn into her music. I liked the way she changed up her singing voice depending on the theme of the song – thick Australian drawl for the storytelling songs, smokey American chanteuse for the jazzier songs – and her between song banter with the audience really connected."
“...Before she sings a single note, Zoe’s eyes and smile welcome an audience and light the room with what can only be described as a good feeling… and then she sings that note. From that moment, she has the audience in the palm of her hand.”
“Re: Lizotte's Sydney "Even then, however, we ate sensational cuisine from the a-la-carte menu and saw four encouragingly talented Australian acts either playing inventive covers (Charlie & Jay) or their own, impressive songs (notably Zoe Elliot)."”
"You are incredible, it made me cry. .. I was gripped, the lyrics are beautiful,.. so inspiring. You have the voice of an angel..."
“Zoe Elliot is one of those natural talents who comes along once a decade. Her easy sultry style, slow sexy smile, the vocal and instrumentation to back it up. ... Her voice is captivating and pure. She glides from pop to folk with ease. This young, vibrant, beautiful songstress has the voice of an angel.”
“Her new album, "Precipitate", presents more of the poignant songwriting we've come to expect from this thoughtful and intelligent artist.”
"..sad in the most beautiful way,... incredibly engaging, ..engrossing, ... performed with absolute honesty.."
"The vocalist is a true talent, with a sweeping, breathy alto reminiscent of so many great singer-songwriters buried under the weight of overproduced popular song. The production is sparse but engaging, the melodies are finely crafted and organized, and the end leaves you moving towards the play button."
"One of the sweetest vocal presentations I have heard in the over 1000 songs I have reviewed. 5 star because there is no 6 star to give"
"Astonishingly beautiful... the show is watching you being so honest.. "
“Zoe Elliot, you are amazing!”
"Sixth performer was the talented Zoe Elliot and as she was the only female amongst the finalists, she really cut loose and played and sung like an angel. The crowd were simply mesmerised with her performance and this also more than impressed the judges. Zoe Elliot simply stole the night with an absolute cracking performance."
"Listening to Precipitate, Zoe Elliot's new CD. Great work Zoe!! It's beautiful and captures you so well. Looking forward to hearing you live again soon."
