Chloe Foy writes a brand of melodic, homegrown music, bursting with colourful, lyrical and textural inflections evocative of much of the music she loves. Taking inspiration from classical
music as much as wider transatlantic trends in folk and indie, Chloe’s songs comprise of carefully constructed arrangements that delicately compliment her cryptic lyrics.
Today, her new single "Oh You Are Not Well" premieres
Having performed at SXSW in Spring 2018, Chloe has captured the attention of rapidly growing UK and US audiences. With the release of her singles ‘Asylum’, ‘Flaws’, and ‘In The Middle Of The Night’, she has accumulated over 9 million plays on Spotify, as well as earning the praise and airtime of the likes of NPR Radio’s Bob Boilen and the BBC’s Steve Lamacq. She has just been named a 2019 BBC Introducing “One To Watch” by Radio 3’s Late Junction. She spent summer 2018 touring in support of the mercurially talented Jesca Hoop (as well as singing backing vocals in Jesca’s band), before embarking on her first ever UK headline tour in the Autumn.
With her strikingly beautiful voice and emotionally direct songwriting, Chloe looks set to have an exciting 2019, with a debut album in the pipeline, a headline spring tour and a string of major festival appearances already confirmed.
Talking of the new single, she says, “Oh You Are Not Well is a song built on raw emotion and the experience of loss. Often songs come to me in a moment and tumble out and reveal my innermost thoughts, and this is one of those. Its subject is the difficulties we face negotiating our demons and the frustration and determination that comes with trying our best to do so. Ultimately should we give in, or try and live through them?”

Following live dates this month in support of Jesca Hoop, Chloe Foy returns with "Are We There Yet", the second track to be taken from her forthcoming synonymous EP IS OUT NOW!. Showcasing her talent for skewed, ambitious folk songwriting.
We described her first single FLAWS as a sublime and sensational debut: ARE WE THERE YET cements our view that Chloe is one of the finds of 2017. It is a beautiful, swirling and completely captivating record. Delicate yet confident that takes the listener to a place of joy and comfort.
Chloe Foy has previously been likened to such artists as Laura Marling and Sharon Van Etten. Her songs are imbued with lyrical and textural inflections evocative of much of the music she
loves - taking inspiration as much from neo-classical music as much as wider trends within indie-rock, Chloe’s new EP comprises carefully constructed arrangements that delicately compliment
her cryptic lyrics.
Chloe’s last single, ‘In The Middle Of The Night’, received generous support from Steve Lamacq on both his Radio 6 & 2 shows, as well as favourable reviews from mainstream media across the country.
The single has generated over one million plays on Spotify, being featured on two popular playlists ‘Stress Buster’ and ‘The Most Beautiful Songs in the World’.
