At such a young age, Chloe is extremely sure of herself and her lyrics show it. Hailing from Clearwater, Florida and making her way to Los Angeles, California, she’s created an indie-pop sound all her own. We got to talk to her about the inspiration behind some tracks and up upcoming EP, Teenage Lullabies.
Cloe, tell me about the track, “Call Me If You Need Me.”
Cloe: “Call Me If You Need Me” is the second fong from my EP, Teenage Lullabies. It’s about my journey of coming to LA and leaving things behind. It was a bit hard at first, but the good totally outweighs the bad.
How did you find the inspiration for the video?
Cloe: The visuals referenced a lot of finding myself throughout my time in California.
At such a young age, you’re so sure about yourself already and it’s impressive. What do you have to credit for that?
Cloe: I come from a very supportive family. I was raised by a single mom and I’m very lucky to have her as my support system.
Which track are you most excited for fans to hear from the EP?
Cloe: I think “I Wanna Be Alone With You.” It’s a fun song and cute. I don’t normally make fun songs, so it’s a very bedroom indie track.
Who are some artists you’re currently listening to?
Cloe: I’m listening to Sasha Sloan, as always, and some Lana Del Rey and Gracie Abrams.
Have you binged any great shows in quarantine or attempted baking banana bread?
Cloe: I’ve binged Euphoria and 13 Reasons Why. I’ve also been baking a lot, but not banana bread. I tried and forgot the flour so I am traumatized, ha! But I have been making these delicious lemon bars.
"At 15 years old, I begged my mom to take me to Walmart to get Taylor Swift's debut deluxe album and I never turned back. This was my very first entry point to stan fandom. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee I was exposed to a ton of music - from rapping 3 6 Mafia to bopping to Justin Timberlake's solo discography. Now, in LA have a day job working in nonprofit development, but by night, I'm a full-fledged fangirl. I'll listen to generally any genre, but I'm a sucker for a good pop song. If you ever need someone to scream sing Carly Rae Jepsen's E·MO·TION with, I'm your girl. No, I still have not gotten over the One Direction hiatus. Please continue to respect my privacy.
