16 Tons of Love




“A force of nature.”
Jimmy Page

“The brave new sound of Heavy Soul and Rock n Roll.”
Rolling Stone

“Within seconds, it was apparent comparisons between Zee Gachette and Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Nina Simone were no exaggeration. The sheer energy of her rock guitar, channelling The Who and Led Zeppelin, and the passion and power in Zee’s voice blew the audience away.”
Rhythms Magazine

“An interstellar ride with the most exquisite psychedelic rock goddess around! Tipping a hat to the doors, but not only that, flipping it up into the air and catching it as a different hat and looking damn good in it, moments of intimate 5th dimension genius, then taken down to the roots of rock ‘n bluesy soul to lift the hearts and feet in order to kick down those doors of perception!”
Creative Evolution

“Z-Star has a surreal presence that draws you in and puts you under her spell. She commands attention with her powerful voice and well-crafted musicianship.”
Beat Magazine

“Destined to touch the hearts of free and sensitive people, bringing joy, freedom and emotion.”
Vogue Italia

“Zee [is] the next Jim Morrison and the 21st Century Doors.”
Music Worldwide

“Sublime…A creative masterpiece.”
Blues & Soul

“Wonderful! Creative, seductive, just downright great!”
Louder Than War

“They’re the band who seemed to skip to ’emerging’ status and jump straight to bigger things.”
Forte Magazine

“New blues star of the future.”
The Blues Magazine

“Dangerous, seductive, edgy, profound and impressively unpredictable.”
Exposure Music Awards UK

“Z-Star just simply tore the stage apart with their incredible musicianship & hi-octane performance. If they had delivered any more energy the stage would have exploded. Zee Gachette you were born a star and you and your band were the highlight of our festival.”

“They deserve to be on a world stage. Period.”
Urban Jazz Radio

“The voice of the globe, electrifying songs, and (Zee’s) evocative stage presence… “
Vanity Fair

“The feedback we have received from the festival audience has been positively phenomenal. Zee’s high energy raw stage performance at the opening concert for the festival blew the many thousands of Canberrans away. Zee’s incredible presence on stage, her raw sound and brilliant voice pushed to its limits, ensured everyone at the festival remained mesmerised. We look forward to hosting Zee and her band once again in the not too distant future.”
