From Chloe Fortay
Chloe lived in the United Kingdom for 4 years while she completed her postgraduate education in classical music, but it wasn’t opera that held her attention. Open mic nights in cozy British pubs, and nightclub gigs with her band,The Fortays, were Chloe’s truest education.
In childhood, Chloe’s musical taste gravitated to the unique synth sounds of early Brit-Pop, the rhythms of American and Traditional Irish Folk, and the vocal warmth of female singers like Joni Mitchell and Annie Lennox. Upon returning to her home in Boston, MA she set up her own home studio to develop her sound. She plays often at local open mics at the Irish Pub, The Burren, the Lizard Lounge, and Club Passim.
