Chloë studied music and education at Cambridge and Norwich universities (1971 – 76). She has travelled worldwide, exploring a wide perspective on voice and sound, in search of “an embodied compassionate singing”.
Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë's fascination with inner sound and the singing voice as the most intimate vehicle for spirit, unhindered by the limitations of social conditioning.
Chloë founded The Naked Voice after a transformative experience in Northern India. Her autobiography, ‘The Naked Voice – Journey to the Spirit of Sound’, currently out of print, tells her story.
She has recorded and performed with Coleman Barks, poet-translator of The Essential Rumi; Angelo Badalamenti, “Hollywood's hottest film composer”; Byzantine composer John Tavener; Eve Ensler of The Vagina Monologues; film director Jane Campion (The Piano, Holy Smoke); Discovery Channel; the BBC and with leading jazz and pop musicians.
Chloë is presently working on two more books, hopefully to be published in 2009.
