Listen to "Old Souls" here, and get to know more about Chloe in our interview below!
Hey Chloe, care introduce yourself?
I am a Los Angeles born and raised beach chick who happens to be a singer-songwriter. I’ve been based in Nashville for 6 years now but split my time with LA still.
Speaking on "Old Souls" what type of music was played in your home growing up?
When I say everything, I mean everything. A lot of classics though. My dad was in a rock band when i was little so definitely a lot of 80s rock, and a LOT of 70s (Fleetwood Mac, The Carpenters, Cat Stevens, Carol King, Rickie Lee Jones, Dolly Parton). But I also grew up around that time of awesome female pop with Michelle Branch, Avril Lavigne, Shania Twain.
What influenced your pursuit in the pop music scene?
I have never want to define my music one way, i just wanted my melting pot of a sound to allow the music to speak for itself and i think pop gives you the freedom to do that. Growing up in LA influenced that sound because it’s also a melting pot. It’s why if I had to label my music, i always say “its a new Southern California sound”. You can hear that freedom, those stories, and that vibe in it. There’s going to always be a molding of old with the new in my music, like something organic with synthetic in some form. You got keep your roots twisted in to what’s happening currently music wise so you always stay authentic.
What's the message you're trying to relay to your listeners with “Old Souls”?
I wanted to bring intention to people’s attention. Way back then, there was more intention behind everything—music, relationships, work, clothing, etc. The effort was put in and the quality was just better. We live in a world where its quantity over quality with most things and it affects us every day. It’s why it’s harder to date, harder to stay focused on anything, and harder to get the output we still want, all because we’re choosing to not value things the same anymore.
If you could collab with any artist, who would it be? Why?
Stevie Nicks because she’s a total free spirit, a creative genius and undoubtedly always been herself. She fought her work even when her own band didn’t believe in it. That takes guts.
What's next for you in 2019?
I plan on releasing the next wave of my music and doing whatever I can to push my boundaries creatively. This is music that challenges the status quo a bit. I wanna find cool ways to bring me even closer to my fans and get to connect with them, I really want to share in this experience with them and bring them along like never before. Whether that’s touring, visiting places I’ve never been (hint hint), and on social media.
