She enjoys connecting with diverse artists and people who share a common drive for success.
We briefly discussed with Chloe how it all started:
“My background has always been within the entertainment industry. When I was 16, I attended performing arts college and trained in dance and musical theatre. Once I graduated college, I taught dance for 6 years. I have always had a passion for music and have been around music since I was young. Coming from a musical family plus my love for music and arts led me to this”
“The idea of being involved in building careers of talented artists and watching them grow everyday is something I loved. I have been fortunate enough to learn from some of the best in the industry including my current mentor ‘Cory Rooney’. Witnessing the greatness of some of the most successful managers/executives has taught me a lot over the years. After learning so many tricks of the trade and useful information, I quickly saw what to do to be successful.
Handling artists can be a challenge, but one of the most important lessons I have learned is to not let a line be crossed. Something I believe is a super important trait to have to be a good manager is patience, being strong will and being good with people. Everything moves so fast in this industry and you have to be able to stay on top of things and multitasking.
My role is to bring people together and being that go to person for your artists and team. I always keep myself to date with the industry, and always practice handling difficult people/difficult situations as this is something you will always run into. On the artist side of things it’s super important to be empathetic too, to understand that they are going to have bad days and good days.
Understanding that they are human, with feelings too is important. My passion for music business came about through my love for the arts. I want to make a difference and help be apart of paving the way for female managers and entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry. When artist feel like they are in a family like environment they begin to open up and become more foccus. I enjoy creating a place for them to feel supported while we work together as a team”
