Born and bred on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Chloe Styler isn’t your typical Country artist. The 20-year-old has been influenced by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and Kacey Musgraves to become the artist she is today.
Chloe’s interest in Country Music began when her parents took her to a Lee Kernaghan concert at just five years old, giving birth to her musically inspired upbringing. This single experience led Chloe to take on piano lessons the next year, followed by singing lessons at seven, saxophone lessons at the age of ten and finally picking up the guitar at 13. Chloe is self-taught on the six string, but over the years it has become her most treasured accessory.
In January 2015, Chloe was fortunate to attend the Junior Course of the CMAA Academy of Country Music, where she learnt invaluable song writing and performance skills. This prompted Chloe to attend the Senior Course of the Academy in January 2017, where she built on those song writing and performance skills. She had the honour of songwriting with Fanny Lumsden and Stuie French, as well as being mentored by Kevin Bennett.
Her unique, youthful and captivating voice has attracted a variety of loyal followers. The 2017 TCMF saw Chloe perform alongside her close friend, Laura Byrnes, at shows such as the Tamworth Opry, the Maton Guitar Showcase and perform alongside her Senior CMAA Academy Graduates at the Opening Concert of the Festival.
In September 2016, Chloe travelled to the Central Coast of NSW to record her debut EP with Simon Johnson. Having self-written five of the six songs on her EP, there is no doubt that the listeners will be given an insight into Chloe’s personal life and thoughts. Chloe is thrilled to have co-written a song with Lyn Bowtell, which will also be featured on the record.
The self-titled debut EP was released on the 24th of January 2017. It was launched at Simon Johnson's Hillbilly Hut Showcase and has seen a great reception from listeners so far! You can purchase the EP via iTunes and GooglePlay, as well as stream on Spotify and Apple Music.
2017 has proven to be an incredible year for Chloe, as she has performed as an opening act for Lee Kernaghan in Shepparton, Frankston, Toowoomba and Twin Towns, as well as at the Big Red Bash in Birdsville. To top off an already amazing year Chloe has been picked as a Top 10 Finalist for the 2018 Toyota Star Maker! Be sure to catch Chloe at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in January 2018.
