In 2013, Chloe recorded her first EP, "I'll Be Alright," which consists of original songs written between the ages of 8 & 11. In January of 2018, Chloe recorded "Awake" at Power Station Berklee NYC as part of her prize package. On the heels of this, her second album, "Ups & Downs," was recorded later that year & released in March of 2019. It contains 7 originals including a new arrangement of the award winning song, "Awake."
In early 2020, Chloe embarked on a new & ambitious project. With her producer, Wayne Silver of The Ice Plant studio, Chloe is working on special arrangements of 7 (possibly 8) new original songs. They will be released in a "drip content" fashion - one per month between February & September of 2020.
