“Chloe crafts songs and delivers performances that are far beyond her years. 'Ups & Downs' marks the opening statement for what I know will be a long and beautiful conversation with anyone who is lucky enough to hear her sing."

This latest effort was produced by Wayne Silver and recorded at The Ice Plant Studio in Long Island City, NY. "Ups & Downs" was released in March, 2019.
Chloe began writing poetry as a small child. Once she picked up a guitar at the age of 8, she immediately began transforming her poetry into songs. In 2013 (when Chloe was 11), she recorded her first EP, which consists of original songs written between the ages of 8 and 11. This debut EP was recorded in the home studio of musician and songwriter, Colin McGrath.
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.
