Chloe Perrier is a French Jazz singer based between NYC and Los Angeles.
Chloe started acting, singing and playing the violin at a young age. After years of acting and singing school and numerous acting shows, Chloe decided to make music, in particular singing, her priority. She studied vocal jazz with Sara Lazarus along with composing and piano with Joe Makholm for three years at the Bill Evans Piano Academy in Paris. During that time, Chloe started to write and compose her first songs.
To further her education Chloe also participated in various workshops, one organized by the guitarists Pierrick Hardy and Olivier Cahours in Crest, France (2009) and one by the singer Claudia Solal in Paris, France (2011).
Nowadays, Chloe performs with her two French Jazz Band as a duet to septet in several locations and clubs in Paris such as Le Sunset-Sunside, Le Reservoir, Hotel Murano and in NYC at the Zinc Bar, The Iridium, Club Bonafide, Feinstein’s 54 Below, Winter Cabaret festival, Summer Cabaret Festival, Vintage train swing festival, Cornelia Street cafe, The Cutting Room, The Manderley and Gallow Green at the Mc Kittrick hotel (Home of the famous show Sleep no more), Club Bonafide, The top of the Standard , the Flatiron room, Fine & Rare and more. She also performed live on the radio show Jazzbox on Radio Aligre, and the TV show Telematin in France, Spectrum TV in LA among others.
Chloe's great strength is her ability to connect with her audience using her clear voice, emotion and true artistic talent.
Whether she interprets great jazz standards, bossa nova, French songs, or her own compositions, she transports the audience into her poetic and romantic universe and enchants the public with the refreshing and dreamy way she has of looking at life.
Her first album Coeur de Francaise (heart of a French girl) is a cheerful mix of famous French songs and her own compositions arranged with a jazz rhythm. She chose a very original trio using only a piano and drums. She is accompanied by the talented pianist Elie Chemali (Grand corps malade, Cheb Kaled, Mamami Keita) and the groovy drummer Felix Sabal-Lecco (Manu Dibango, Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock).
She released her second album on October 22nd 2019 at the Cutting Room NYC with her new band French Heart Jazz Band, a mix of French chansons and American jazz standards from the 20s to the 40s with a continental flare, with whom she is performing all around the city.
She is accompanied by her New York dream team Aki Ishiguro on guitar, Jim Robertson on bass, and Rodrigo Recabarren on drums, Jon Hunt on clarinet and Caroline Bugala on violin.
