Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë’s deep encounter with her inner self, and began a lifetime’s experiential research into the voice as a catalyst for personal evolution and global transformation.
Chloë studied Music, English and Education at Cambridge and Norwich universities (1972 – 76) where she graduated as a Music-English teacher with a B.Ed Hons degree. From the late 70’s she evolved her own East-West vocal research, influenced by travels through Africa, India, Turkey, Europe, USA and Canada. Chloe’s meetings with indigenous wisdom teachers, spiritual and classical Indian music masters, ultimately led to a ‘no-mind’ experience in Northern India, inspired by the great luminary and saint, Anandamayi (1896-1982).
This life-changing experience in 1990, inspired the unique method of sound and voice, which Chloe named The Naked Voice. Her memoir The Naked Voice – Journey to the Spirit of Sound tells the story of these formative early years. (Rider Books 1993). Chloe’s recent book The Naked Voice – Transform Your Life through the Power of Sound is an instructional guide that introduces the essential teachings of The Naked Voice. It was published by North Atlantic Books in 2015.
Inspired by ancient & modern world genres, sacred chants, anthems, love songs & poetry.
