The daughter of an Air Force pilot, Chloe's nomadic childhood allowed for very few constants.


The faces, schools, languages, & homes would change every few years, but her family's upright piano remained the same, and there she'd find herself looking for continuity.


After time overseas, a move stateside in 2011 opened up avenues of musical theater, marching band, and jazz ensemble for the first time which she enthusiastically applied herself to. 


Out of a "slim pickings" need, she filled the role for pianist in her senior year for Grafton High School's jazz ensemble (Yorktown, VA) under Darren Kirsch.


She graduated thereafter with a B.M. in Jazz Studies ('17) in voice from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virgina.


Bob Hallahan, pianist and professor in the jazz program until 2022, was a major proponent for her acceptance into the program and became a significant musical mentor.


In 2018, Chloe received international recognition as a composer-arranger and lyricist, being chosen as one of 24 young adults for that year's Betty Carter Jazz Ahead residency program, hosted at the Kennedy Center & conducted by pianist Jason Moran. 

That same year she relocated to Austin to launch her musical career and begin her family, actively performing up to 36 weeks pregnant in 2019.


While holding down several residencies throughout CenTex, Chloe stepped up as Mozart's Coffee Roasters musical curator in the fall of 2020, having been selected as its Resident Artist.

Under her direction by 2021, Mozart's music program expanded to inaugurate the Keep Live Music Alive Singer-Songwriter Showcase, the Late at the Lake Tuesday Variety Show, and the Jazz in the Grotto series on top of its yearly calendar, with dozens of acts every week.


Her role as emcee for Tuesday's Late at the Lake facilitated between 30 to 40 different performers each night, with original music being celebrated by large and diverse crowd.

In the spring of 2022, she launched the podcast series, "This Week Late at the Lake," featuring notable original content live at Mozart's. The podcast falls under the Music Interviews category, and within two months of creation began charting in the US at #119. Even into 2024, it has charted internationally, reaching listeners in Uruguay, South Korea, Japan, India, Germany, and beyond.

Collaborating with drummer, Anthony Corsaro, their pop duo, Duo Nuvole, held a weekly residency from late 2020 to early 2022, delighting audiences with their goofy banter and delivering, "never the same way twice" spin on classic hits, American jazz standards, and her original compositions. 

In November of 2020, she released a studio co-produced project, "Memoir." In its short time streaming, The Austin Chronicle reviewed the project, hyperlinked at the top of this page.


Another collection of authentic, uncompromised, unadulterated arrangements featuring songs off that project is anticipated to be re-recorded live and published under a more authentic representation of her sound.


7 original songs and 2 instrumentals give a glance into her lyrical mind and showcase her dominance over melody.

"This is a beautiful project. In a world completely distracted by flash, speed & shock value it's refreshingly comforting to hear music that's intended to innocently transport us to a peaceful and safe space. The purity of Chloe's voice delivers these heartfelt lyrics and their underlying message with courage and hope. This is good music."

- Mark Whitfield (guitar)

"So soulful. Her writing is brilliant. Anointed music indeed."

- Andre Hayward (trombone)

"Timeless lyrics, diverse music and arrangements, clear and relevant message, nostalgic."

- Laura Anglade (vocalist)

"The entire set is tangibly, viscerally intimate. Beautiful writing, stunning delivery."

- Ari Carvajal (guitar)

In October 2023, Chloe won the Zeider's American Dream Theater Proteus Contest for her original compositions and performances leading a full band. The winnings of the contest include 4 hours of recording time and a headlining show at the Z as part of its "Live At The Z Series." Tickets are available now for her debut headliner on Friday, April 19th, 2024.


Chloe is married to Liam Houston and the mother of two daughters.
