oh what a night...
Chloe Charles (CAN)
sha-man - - - a person who acts as an intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds, has access to and influence in the world of good and evil, uses magic to cure illness and foretell the future especially among the peoples of northern Asia and North America.

When the mysterious and shamanic Chloe Charles steps into the light of our stage in all her glorious beauty you’ll be reminded of the simple truth that beauty is power and combined with artistic intelligence it’s lethal. Chloe’s a former psychology student before launching her musical career and has been compared to Amy Winehouse, Feist, Björk, Cat Power, Etta James, Nina Simone and Joanna Newson. Although she may have felt honored by all this, we know she’s not particularly impressed by it either. Because her personal instruments are her own extremely distinctive voice and one of the finest self-taught and effortless guitars you’ll ever hear.

Her debut full-length album «Break The Balance» was released in 2012 all over Europe, a year ahead of it in her own Canada. It’s no exaggeration it created a sensation, followed by accolades from Billboard to Rolling Stone. It’s an album that excels with «a collection of orchestral and jazz-touched folk pop songs with a healthy dose of experimentation and at its core is Chloe’s classical guitar genius.» Her lyrics communicate pain and strength, examinations and empathy, intimacy and jubilant excitement. Her live performances hear like an assembly of who’s who in the strings department – violin, viola, cello and contra bass all find their creative purpose in the art of the ravishing Chloe Charles. Above it all hovering,  breezing, urging and soothing is her incomparable voice.

It’ll be an evening with the beauticious delicious Chloe Charles dedicated to all things sensual and beautiful – artistically and super naturally. Do put a new string onto your bow and play along.
