Classically trained from the age of eight, cellist and composer Zoë Keating spent her 20’s dabbling in computer software while moonlighting as a cellist in rock bands. Inevitably, she combined the two, and now uses a foot-controlled laptop to turn herself into one-woman orchestra. Zoë’s self-released albums have sold 30,000 copies and been several times #1 on the iTunes classical and electronica charts. She is the recipient of a 2009 performing arts grant from the Creative Capital foundation.
