Chloe Kay is an artist from London UK. Her unique style and voice has recently garnered attention from BBC Introducing who described her music as ‘Delectable, delicious dark pop. Spooky in all the best ways’. Drawing inspiration from diverse genres including hip hop, Rnb and electronic music, Chloe enjoys experimenting and adding elements of the music she loves into her own music, finding breaking the rules in pop music making nowadays to be liberating.
Chloe’s love of music began with learning the piano and for a long while she had dreams of becoming a concert pianist. However she never quite felt she belonged in the classical music world, suffering from performance anxiety and always preferring to compose and express herself with her own tunes at the piano. It was not until she enrolled in a music production course that she felt she found true real musical freedom. The only girl on the course at the time, she was introduced to the creative possibilities of music technology. It was then she began songwriting in her mini bedroom studio experimenting and writing her own bedroom pop songs. Having collaborated and worked with many producers, Chloe knows the importance of working with like minded people and believes knowledge of music production is the answer to female artists retaining creative control over their music. ’Knowing how to produce my own music has given me the freedom and power to create the music I want to create. So many people have ideas of how you should sound but at the end of the day I want to feel good about the music I’m making’.
After moving to Toronto, Canada for a while, Chloe signed a publishing deal which led her to writing with many international artists and producers, including Canadian bands such as Martha and the Muffins. Now back in the UK, Chloe has had recent success with her acoustic covers of ‘How Long’ and ‘Royals’ reaching over 3 million plays on Spotify and has just released a double A side featuring tracks ‘Fall Into U’ and ‘Let Me In’ via London based record label Frtyfve Records.
