How it all began
Chloe Friedman’s background is built on a foundation of nearly 10 years in musical theatre. In 2004, she discovered and fell in love with the craft of songwriting, and two years later released her inaugural album of self-penned original pop/rock songs, titled “Triple Threat”.
“I was just on fire. I was writing so much because it was new and exciting for me, that whole process of framing stories and thoughts into songs,” Chloe said of working on “Triple Threat”.
Since “Triple Threat’s” release date, Chloe has spent her time performing and working on two more independent original solo albums. “These Walls”, a soulful pop infused collection of songs was released in 2011. Her latest EP, “Homegrown”, which can be found on most digital music platforms including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify, was released in 2016. A native of Southwest Florida, the title track, “Homegrown,” pays homage to growing up as a local spending weekends at the beach. For seven consecutive years, Chloe performed more than 100 times a year. You could say she has developed quite a diverse musical repertoire, and her voice continues to grow and capture listeners.
Chloe said, “I released my first album at 15 years old. Finally, after three albums and over 10 years later, I found my style and what I’m comfortable writing; something that people can relate to.”
In 2016, following the release of her late EP, Chloe moved to Nashville, Tennessee where she has lived for the past year furthering her education and practice of songwriting, and performing in the city’s popular original music venues.
Chloe’s performance highlights include opening for Five for Fighting’s lead singer, John Ondrasik, and a national tribute concert series featuring the music of Aerosmith, Tina Turner and Whitney Houston. In 2014 and 2015, she joined the lineup of songwriters in the Island Hopper Songwriter’s Festival, hosted by BMI Nashville and Cat Country 107.1 radio, located on the beaches on Fort Myers and Sanibel in Florida.
