"Chloe Charles... sings unique and colourful songwriter-pop
songs with an introverted beauty of surprising clarity."

"Haunting, lush, beautiful… spellbinding guitar work." Guitar World - 10 Female Guitarists You Should Know
The press has likened singer-songwriter Chloe Charles to everyone from Björk to Billie Holiday, Amy Winehouse to Adele, Alicia Keys to Joni Mitchell. While this undoubtedly reflects her unfathomable range, it also goes a long way towards describing why this singing sorceress' musical magic defies any and all straitjackets of classification. She is just spellbindingly different, playing stunning classical guitar and writing songs that evoke the sound of fellow-Canadian Joni Mitchell.
Her discovery of classical guitar just a few short years ago fuelled a love for all things stringed and resonant, plotting a roadmap for a territory inhabited by cello, violin and bass - each song a mini-symphonic stopping point. Here, her penchant for orchestral soul pop and jazz - and a blend of many influences in-between - could happily co-exist within a timeless and ethereal soundscape.
Since her debut CD Little Green Bud two years ago,
Ontario-born Chloe has performed 300 shows in 8 countries and her
debut at The Crazy Coqs as part of the EFG LONDON JAZZ FESTIVAL
coincides with the release of her first full length CD Break
