Rising singer Chloe Castro brings a fresh contemporary R&B sound, blending her unique voice with honest lyrics on her debut EP, AMID, released on 23rd October.

The five-track EP is a retelling of stories from Chloe’s own life. She chose the name to represent the feeling of being surrounded by emotions. “That resonated with me in a sense…I feel completely boxed in by my feelings and emotions, stuck in the middle of them, in stasis. Like I can feel nothing else or see nothing else.”

Featured is Chloe’s recent single, She, which garnered much praise, premiering in Wonderland Magazine, winning Track of the Week on BBC Introducing and being featured on American Songwriter Magazine’s US Podcast Bringing It Backwards. Used To Be is one of my personal favourites; with its catchy beat, strong melody and Chloe’s lush vocal tone. The track deals with aspiring to be a serious artist and the change of perspective that comes with it. It’s an upbeat, feel-good track, half R&B, half rap.

I feel like this EP is the real start of what I was made to do,” says Chloe. “It represents the beginning of me defining my sound.” Chloe Castro’s AMID is definitely one for anyone who enjoys the likes of Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys, full of soul and raw energy. Time to plug in, switch off and dig deep.
