The wonderfully-named ZOË-FASHION PLATE is a stylish soul singer who works in and around Houston, Texas. Over the last couple of years she’s been the local lady to open Houston shows for visiting soul royalty … people like Patti Labelle, Roy Ayers and Rashaan Patterson and enthusiastic reviewers have compared Zoe’s sound and style to people like Sade and Erykah Badu; enigmatic, laid-back and soulful.

Young Ms Fashion Plate has just launched her first mini album… a sweet 5 track affair called ‘Stylish Melodies’. The lead cut is a crisp, mid-tempo beater called ‘I Got U’. It’s certainly stylish and boasts a great melody but it’s those sedate beats that could endear it to the modern soul fraternity.

The riff-laden tune (and indeed the whole EP) is available from all the usual download platforms and you can learn more @ www.zoefashionplate.com
