In late 2017, Zoe Whittaker, known musically as Zoe Child, released the cosmic country single, “Cowboy”, and instantly put herself on the radar in Charleston’s music scene. She first formed roots in the scene during her time at the College of Charleston’s music school, where she studied classical violin. During her time at CofC, she became friends with Corey Campbell, who was studying classical piano and musicology. As you probably know, Corey went on to join SUSTO.
Upon graduating from CofC, Zoe moved to Arizona to further her classical violin studies in graduate school. She and Corey stayed in touch during this time, sharing demos back and forth and keeping up with each other’s musical ambitions. When Zoe finished up school in Arizona, she moved back to Charleston where she began working on the songs that will form the Zoe Child EP.
The EP is slated for a March 3rd release, and is currently in the final stages of recording and production. Corey Campbell is producing the EP, and Vlado Meller of Truphonic Studios is mastering the tracks. Zoe Child will celebrate its release with a party at the Royal American.
Zoe linked up with Drew Gardner of Toucan Films to create a video that captures the essence of Zoe Child. The song featured here is called “Bad Luck”, and it will be on the forthcoming EP. Julis DeAngelis of The High Divers laid down the drum track on “Bad Luck” and a few other songs on the EP.
Check out the promo for “Bad Luck” below, and be on the lookout for that Zoe Child EP coming March 3rd.
