Artist in the Spotlight – Chloe Hawes
Some of our favourite musicians have started out as little-known, unsigned bands. Some of them still are! With this in mind, here is a place for us to promote the artists you just have to check out. Give them a listen and then give them some love.
Chloe Hawes is a singer-songwriter from Essex, currently based in Manchester; blending folk, rock, and country music. Following her self released debut Sessions From Home (released in 2014), her second release, Jukebox Generation, came out on Manchester’s Under the Bridge Records in 2017.
Off of the back of this release, she completed two UK tours, as well as a sold out launch show with her backing band at The Castle Hotel in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Chloe has shared bills with the likes of Xtra Mile Recording’s Chris TT, The Lion and the Wolf, and Sean McGowan, as well as Jared Hart (The Scandals), and Wallis Bird. She has also played a number of Sofar Sounds Sessions, in Leeds, Berlin, and Hannover. In 2018, Chloe completed 2 tours of Germany, and has supported the likes of Emily Barker in Berlin, and Beans on Toast in Hamburg. She has also supported Brett Newski on a few dates of his European tour, seeing her perform her first gigs in The Netherlands, and further shows around Germany.
Over the summer Chloe performed at Manchester Pride on the Sackville Gardens Boutique Stage, on a line up curated by Heather Peace. Following the release of her third EP, Chloe will be embarking on an extensive UK tour, which will include a launch show at Gulliver’s in Manchester.
