Singer Songwriter Chloe Ray
Drums: Daniel Smith. Bass: Daniel Stubberfield. Cello: Alex Eichenberger. Piano: Rhodri Williams.
Vocals / Guitar: There is a raw emotional feel to the EP throughout the four tracks. Underlying exceptional performances are stories of heartbreak, loss, courage and a poignant track addressing the struggles of a unknown musician lost in New York. The EP confronts a raw and honest battle with personal experiences.
The EP was mastered by Grammy nominated engineer Emily Lazar (Sia, Foo fighters, Jeff Buckley, Lou Reed, Alanis Morissette) at the Lodge in NYC. Chloe has shared the stage with Adam Barry from Merrymouth and Dan Sealy (Ocean Colour Scene) as well as up and coming The Rainband (Paolo Nutini, Kaiser Chiefs, Simple Minds).
More recently Chloe has worked with grime artist Sketchman (Radio 1) on his new album as co-writer and featured artist on the debut single “Paramount” played on UK based radio stations as well as London Live. Chloe toured the UK to promote the release of the EP and returned to New York to make the music video for one of the tracks off the EP titled “New York”. Chloe’s latest EP – Reprise – is out now and available on Amazon. The Waiting Room is also available. “Definitely two ‘from the heart EPs for the connoisseur’s music collection!”
