Chloe is an award-winning singer-songwriter from New York City. She recently won the MyNYC Song Contest sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and Guitar Mash, as well as placing first in the Teen Division of the New England Songwriting Competition. Chloe has had the pleasure of performing with world renowned artists such as Mark Stewart (Music Director and guitarist for Paul Simon) and Justin Guarini (2nd Place, American Idol, Season 1).
Chloe has a natural affinity for the magic of pairing words and music, and began writing and recording at an early age -- releasing an EP of original material in 2013 at age 11. In 2019, Chloe released her first album, “Ups & Downs”, and in 2020, Chloe embarked on her most ambitious project yet. Her plan was to release one new single per month from February through September. This “drip content” approach began according to plan but then the pandemic hit NYC and everything ground to a halt. To-date, Chloe has released 4 of her 8 singles with number 5 due to be released in late August 2020.
All of Chloe's music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and many other streaming and download services. You can catch Chloe on Instagram @chloehennesseemusic doing weekly livestreams on Thursdays at 6PM EST. If you’re lucky, her orange tabby cats, Cooper and Franklin, will make an appearance (singing harmony and/or adding various percussion to Chloe’s covers and originals).
Chloe works with Ohana to source quality instruments to accompany her music. Ohana is excited to be working with this talented young woman!
Check out Chloe's acoustic version of her original song, Play With Fire.
“I first heard about Ohana when I was taking an after school ukulele class at my school in 3rd or 4th grade! My dad is one of the instructors and always recommends Ohana ukuleles to his students for their great workmanship, intonation, and sound. When it was time for me to buy a “step up” ukulele, it was an Ohana! I now own several Ohana ukuleles and love them all!”
