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.
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 titled 'Storm chaser', which is featured on the record.
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.
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 was an incredible year for Chloe, as she 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. Chloe’s original song ‘My Heart Is Yours’ was ranked number 7 on the International Mainstream Country Music Top 40 Singles Chart during the first week of March. Furthermore, she was personally ranked number 36 on the IMCM Top 200 Artists Chart for that same week.
This year, Chloe was a Grand Finalist in the 39th Annual Toyota Star Maker competition and performed on James Blundell, Troy Cassar Daley and Lee Kernaghan’s TCMF shows. During the TCMF 2018, Chloe was awarded the TSA Songwriters Salute Award for ‘Contemporary Song of the Year’ for her original ‘Control’.
