Chloe Collins is a singer songwriter based in Nashville. She’s not your typical 19-year old. From New York, Chloe moved to Nashville in her early/mid teens to immerse herself in music and the Nashville scene. She’s a seasoned performer and recording artist having played some very noteworthy venues, including The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the Opry City Stage and The Bitter End in New York, and the House of Blues in New Orleans.

Chloe is now learning how to be a performing artist amidst a pandemic. Although she built an amazing social following and community, she confesses that the whole live streaming thing is new and challenging. She anticipates that recording is about to become a challenge for her as well. It seems to me that she takes every challenge head on, with little fear.

Her latest release Didn’t Want You is an exploration in new sounds for Chloe and she is hoping to dive deeper with it in future recordings.
