“Nitrous-injected hyper-blues that spiritually hail from the Mississippi Delta…astonishingly huge sound for a duo” – 100% Rock Magazine
The explosive duo features the electrifying award-winning frontwoman Zee Gachette deemed “one to watch” by BBC Radio 2 (drums and acoustic guitar), and guitar prodigy Sebastien Heintz, who effortlessly deliver a fascinating cinematic road trip of sound. Zee’s hypnotic presence, bewitching raspy blue tones, big acoustic guitars and swampy grooves laced with Seb’s dark desert slide, psyche blues guitars and synth make for a beautifully dangerous concoction. From the acoustic sublime, to high octane rock. Sensual, expansive, powerful. The duo’s sound journeys through an intoxicating and experimental mix of Country Blues and Desert Rock.
“Z-Star Delta from the UK, offer up a smorgasbord of tunes, effects and rhythms. One minute you’re rocking and then you’re in a science fiction movie! Deep down and dirty rendition of ‘I Put a Spell on You’ – complex and enthralling and how does she drum like that AND SING!!!” – Australian Stage
“The duo had the audience entranced with their evocative stage presence. Great musical diversity” – Adelaide Fringe / Rip It Up (AU)
“Zee puts you under her spell” – Beat Magazine (AU)
Z-STAR DELTA were born on the road down under, off the back of a 30 date Z-STAR Australian tour in 2015. Seb joined Zee on that first tour, and they played as an ‘acoustic’ duo inbetween the big festival shows, which led to a whole new entity being created. New music, new energy…the exploration vessel sent down from the mothership.
They returned to Australia every year 2016-2018, in their own right as Z-STAR DELTA, and have since performed over 100 shows around the continent including headline slots at Mitchells’ Creek Rock n Blues Festival, The Basement, The Garden of Unearthly Delights, Camelot Lounge, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Mullum Music Festival. Plus their smokin’ debut at Glastonbury (UK) in 2017.
Z-STAR DELTA will be releasing their debut EP in early 2019. Current lowkey releases include; Dark Days Down Under Tour CD (digital only), and Face The Iron Ram Tour Mixtape.
The Australian media have been championing the duo with generous press coverage, and airplay of live recordings, interviews and live performances on Triple J, ABC Stations, 4ZZZ, PBS and a plethora of regional stations. Z-STAR DELTA’s first tour CD ‘Dark Days Down Under’ topped number 6 on the iTunes Blues Album Charts with an under the radar release announced to fans only.
