We had the good fortune of connecting with Chloè Allen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chloè, do you have some perspective or insight you can share with us on the question of when someone should give up versus when they should keep going?
While in high school I was diagnosed with vocal nodules. After countless months of trying to shrink them on my own through vocal rest and dieting they didn’t seem to want to go away, which made me question is singing truly for me. I would sing at countless events in my hometown but after that diagnoses I wasn’t sure on weather or not I would be able to continue on. After having surgery it took a couple months for me to get back to singing and I was afraid that I would get them again. I just knew In my heart that I had to push through although I was very discouraged because I couldn’t see my life with out singing.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets me apart from other artist is my willingness to listen and learn. I take from the greats that came before me and apply it to my craft.

My most proudest moment, is when I released my EP last year. It was so rewarding to get to that point in my life because it felt like I never would.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
One of my favorite places lately has been the Atlanta Beltline. You can literally enjoy an entire day on it. We would go to a rooftop during the day for lunch and Speakeasy that evening for great drinks and live music.

The Battery, has also been a great place to hang out at as well. I enjoy all the restaurants and the frozen drink place they just added. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My sister Chanel, for always being by my side.
