With her eclectic taste inspired by her worldly experiences and unique sense of style, the New York City-bornDJ, producer, multi-instrumentalist and label owner is bringing her infectious sound and energy toaudiences all over the world.
From an early age, Chloé has unfolded her journey sonically. Music for Chloé transcends sound-it’s a constant companion, a confidant navigating the ebbs and flows of life, her second skin. A rockstar at heart whose musical odyssey has never been confined to convention, the classically trained pianist embraces exploration to inform her unique musical identity-a harmonious rebellion that masterfully blurs genres and brings listeners on a deeply personal journey into her universe.
Just as she bends auditory expressions to weave her own sonic tapestry, Chloé’s early career synchronized her professional and personal passions on a mission to immerse herself into the music industry in any way possible. As she navigated New York City's vibrant nightlife scene and honed her skills as a club promoter, Chloe simultaneously delved into the music business in A&R at Republic Records (where she was also an intern) and creative projects at Lava Records. In 2017, in response to what she identified as a white space in the industry, Chloé’s industry savvy and artistic spirit led her to launch her own creative agency where she skillfully bridged the gap between brand partnerships and artists in fashion and beyond.

She dropped her first independent single, “Love Ain’t Over” in 2021 via XCESS RECORDS, the label she co-founded as an offshoot of PVBLIC XCESS, her creative and event collective offering a collaborative platform and party environment for diverse artists of all backgrounds.
