Six Questions With Chloe Jane
Welcome to “Six Questions With…,” a series of interviews with emerging artists, musicians, and bands focusing on the music scene and how they live within it. It started as a quick, fun project, but has quickly gained serious interest, so we’re making this a permanent feature on the site. Over time, the questions may change, but the sentiment will stay intact. This is a way for independent artists to be discovered by new fans on a global scale.
Within in each post, you will find all of their social media links, and also either a link to their music, or the ability to stream at least one of their tracks or videos, depending on the availability.
We hope you enjoy this series, and if you know anyone that might be interested in being part of it, please have them reach out to us for more information.
Next in the hot seat is New York City-based indie singer-songwriter and DJ, Chloe Jane. We have not had the privilege of featuring Chloe Jane here on the pages of Indie Minded, so we are thrilled to bring you this short interview. If you’re not familiar with her, sit back and enjoy! This is what is great about this series – the discovery of new music.
For those who may not be familiar, please tell us about your music: the type of music you play, where you are from, and how you got started?
I record and sing pop music- I also DJ and play pop/EDM music. I am from New York City. First I started Ice-Skating and Dancing and then I started to play piano at 9 years old. Then I started singing at 10 years old and started to write songs at 11 years old. In my house, there was a piano and one day I thought it might be fun to learn to play the piano. I started taking piano lessons, from there I decided I wanted to start singing and I took extensive voice lessons and after I started playing the piano and singing songs, I felt I could write songs as well and I started writing. After I started writing, I really became interested in creating music and decided I also wanted to DJ, as it would give me another dimension of music to learn. I started taking DJ lessons and also learned from various DJs my parents knew like Jellybean Benitez.
As an artist, how do you define success?
Having very successful records and tours- also becoming an international brand.
What do you find to be your greatest struggle when it comes to the music business?
Achieving success at such a young age.
If you could only play ONE of your songs for the rest of your career, which one would it be?
It’s my song “My Life” which I wrote. (I am happy to send it or play it for you)
We don’t have that one, but we’ve got “Superstar” for your ears:
Who do you consider your greatest influences?
I love Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Martin Garrix, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato.
Outside of music, what do you like to do that you feel contributes to the creativity that you tap into for your music?
I love filming makeup videos and vlogs for my YouTube channel Chloe Jane’s World. I love fashion, designing my own Chloe Jane jackets and shirts. I also love playing tennis and going for a bike ride in Central Park.
