Biography

1) Zoe (born Zoë Pollock, 19 January 1969, Peckham, London) is a British pop singer and songwriter, who had brief success in 1991 with two hit singles, "Sunshine on a Rainy Day", which climbed to #4 on the UK Singles Chart, and "Lightning", which reached #37 (and spent three weeks in the UK Top 40). Zoë has released two solo albums and five singles. 
She initially started her career in the mid-1980s, by auditioning for Jimi Cauty and Youth to be the lead singer for their band Brilliant. She began dating Youth, who would later produce her two solo albums. 

Zoë released her debut single, "Sunshine On A Rainy Day", in late 1990, with two different music videos. It failed to reached the UK Top 40, however it was remixed and re-released in 1991 and it became a Top 10 hit, peaking at #4. Her début album, Scarlet Red and Blue (to which singer Sam Brown contributed) included "Sunshine on a Rainy Day" and another moderately popular song, "Lightning", which peaked and spent a respectable 3 weeks at #37 on the UK Singles Chart. The album, despite good promotion and reviews, however, did not sell well, reaching only #67 on the UK Albums Chart. It featured similar dance-pop tracks as well as soulful ballads. Soulful vocalists Sam Brown and Yazz both provided backing-vocals on the album. "Holy Days" was the last single from Scarlet Red and Blue, released in February 1992, but only managed #72. In 1991, Zoë sang backing vocals on Bananarama's Pop Life album, which was produced by Youth. 

In 1996, Zoë re-emerged (still signed to M&G Records) with a revamped image, style and sound. Her new album, Hammer was American rock. The title track was released as a single, but failed to reach the UK Singles Chart. After this album she disappeared from the music scene for several years, travelling around the world and becoming a sculptor and potter. 

Zoë recorded an EP under the alias Hephzibah Broom, released by an independent Manchester label. Zoë became part of the female folk duo Mama, with singer Sarah McQuaid. They released their debut album, Crow Coyote Buffalo, in late 2008. The album includes a folk re-recording of Zoë's signature song, "Sunshine on a Rainy Day", for which the group also made a music video.

Zoë moved to Cornwall and married Murray Lachlan Young, a Scottish poet. They had two children, but they divorced in 2009.
