22-year-old Queensland singer/songwriter – Chloe Styler – is not your typical artist. Drawing influences from Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and Kacey Musgraves, Chloe has allowed herself the freedom to explore a more personal approach to her music while creating a timeless sound rather than following the latest music trends.
At just five years of age, she accompanied her parents to her first live concert. As a result, Chloe fell completely in love with music, birthing a musically crazed youngster who became obsessed with all styles. At six she started taking piano lessons followed by singing lessons at 7, saxophone at 10 and progressing to teaching herself guitar at 13.
Chloe recorded and released her self-funded debut EP – “Chloe Styler” - in January 2017. Having written or co- written all of the six tracks, the songs give a personal insight into Chloe’s life and thoughts and reflect an artist of class and maturity well beyond her years.
She has entered numerous talent quests around the country and is gathering as much live experience as she can to continue honing her craft and developing her artistry. Chloe has also been lucky to support a vast array of major chart artists and all agree this young lady is simply the real deal!
Chloe’s single, “When Your Light Burns” was co-written with the acclaimed Fanny Lumsden and produced by ARIA winner, Matt Fell (Tim Freedman/Morgan Evans). The song was awarded the 2019 TSA Award for Alternative Country Song of The Year and received national airplay including a lucrative playlist addition to ABC Local Radio. In February 2019, the song was shortlisted as a Top 5 Finalist in the Country category of the Q Music Awards. Chloe says the song is an ode to her childhood. “The inspiration came from a Lighthouse that has stood tall in the Great Barrier Reef for over 150 years. I have experienced many family holidays on this island and have been fortunate to learn its history and create my own along the way”, she says.
“This lighthouse has been a constant throughout my life, and reminds me that although I can feel alone, lost and completely unsure of what to do next, it will always be there to guide me home.”
“We all have that special place that we hold close to our hearts, and this song is about mine. The Lighthouse is the heart of my childhood, my family and my future.”
In April 2019, Chloe was named as a finalist for Breakout Artist of the Year at the Gold Coast Music Awards. She’s also been announced as a 2019 performer at Groundwater Country Music Festival, Gympie Muster and Deni Ute Muster and playing support spots to Lee Kernaghan, James Blundell and Amber Lawrence.
She is currently working on new material with her new single, “Patient Heart”, slated for release in August. Chloe’s unique and captivating voice has already attracted a variety of loyal followers of all musical tastes and has been compared to artists including Lisa Mitchell, Jewel and Julia Stone.
