Of mixed Indian, Welsh and Scottish heritage, Chloe is a singer/songwriter and harpist keen to explore breaking down cultural and gender barriers through her music. She performs in Scots, Welsh and English.

Many of her songs are inspired by the natural world as experienced during her years at sea as a Navigational Officer in the Merchant Navy. Working on oil tankers has given Chloe an interesting perspective on our relationship with the sea, and her ethereal and innovative music gives a glimpse into the modern mariner’s life, and is truly unique.

Chloe was nominated for Scots Singer of the Year in the 21st MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards (2023). She first appeared at Open mics in Pembrokeshire with her harp, prior to the global pandemic and since then has appeared at many festivals including Celtic Connections, Edinburgh Fringe and Cambridge Folk Festival, and will travel to Australia this coming year.

Her debut album, Small Voyages (2022) was voted Celtic Music Radio’s Album of the Year and included in the Top 20 World Music Charts Europe. The songs are set to an evocative backdrop of Celtic harp music and field recordings of the natural world.

Chloe was awarded a prestigious ‘Danny’ award at Celtic Connections, earning her a showcase at Cambridge Folk Festival in summer 2023 where her single, The Silkie of Sule Skerry, was debuted.

Chloe lives on her family-run Alpaca & Goat Trekking Centre on the West Coast of Scotland.


‘With her lead voice a tremulous quaver over the chiming strings, it is eerily in-drawing, like a siren’.
