She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello, creating intricate, haunting and compelling music.  Keating was classically trained from the age of eight.  She obtained a liberal arts degree and then spent her 20’s working in software while moonlighting as a cellist in rock bands. She eventually combined the cello and the computer, developing her signature style of live-layered music while improvising for late night crowds at her Francisco warehouse. She speaks regularly on artist-empowerment, sustainable careers and the concept of artist-as-entrepreneur, has been profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered, named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.   For the last two years, Zoë has been slowly touring North America, young child in tow, to support her latest album,Into the Trees, which spent 49 weeks on the Billboard classical charts, peaking at #7…She is also extremely fond of pancakes and likes to say yes to crazy things… (Source: zoekeating.com)
