Chloe Flower Rises Up To The Call On Debut Album

Chloe Flower is the most talked about pianist in the world following a performance with Cardi B at the 2019 Grammy Awards. She is an official Steinway Artist, composer, producer, activist, and fashion influencer who began playing piano at the age of two.

Her debut album is in three acts — I. Innocence, II. Suffering and III. Hope — this interesting collection was composed, produced and recorded in the artist’s New York City apartment during the Covid-19 pandemic. It features spoken words from Deepak Chopra and an interpretation of Billie Eilish’s chart-topping hit ‘Bad Guy’.

The album cover might be deceptive as it suggests that this is an R&B album. Rather than discovering the new Ariana Grande album you will hear instead a series of piano compositions.

There are not just classical influences in the mix you will find other genres such as hip-hop and trap beats with a nod to current artists such as Billie Eilish.

Standout songs include: 'Rise Up' which encompasses a striking melody, along with 'Suffering' and the track 'Hope', both of which include alternative medicine advocate Deepak Chopra.
