"This is my song of the year (so far)"

I haven't been this excited about a piece of music since I discovered James Taylor (which happened, embarassingly, at the beginning of the year). This time, however, I can be fairly confident you haven't heard the track either.

Spark was released in June 2020 by a skilled duo working in the sub-sub-genre of Christian Jazz Rock. It's the only video you'll find on YouTube bearing that particular hashtag. It might be a surprise then, if Zoetic go on to gain a massive following, but this track demonstrates that they are certainly worthy of mass acclaim.

Emma Voron sings in a refreshingly unaffected style, tackling Spark's playful melodies with an energy that is in no way hampered by her attention to technique. Songwriter Kierstyn St. John takes a similar approach to her keyboard playing - displaying flair without trying to be flashy. Watch out for her solo. - Andy Lowe


"Truth I Need" (single, 2020)
"Spark" (single, 2020)



Zoetic is the project of multi-instrumentalist Kierstyn St. John and vocalist Emma Voron. The music is keyboard-based jazz fusion with some progressive influences-- songs that are complex yet accessible to the average listener. Kierstyn and Emma have been long been dissatisfied with the lack of musical variety and compositional craft in modern Christian music, and aim to change the current CCM landscape through music which is innovative in harmony, songwriting, and production. 

They also aren't afraid to approach difficult or even controversial topics in their lyrics and have written songs about false gospels, about the need for evangelism, about mental health, and other current important cultural issues of today all from a Biblical perspective. Zoetic, in essence, makes people think deeply about their faith through music and lyrics that push the boundaries of the Christian music industry as we know it.
