Chloe Matharu is a singer songwriter and harpist from Inverclyde.. Many of her songs draw on her time as a Navigational Officer in the Merchant Navy, inspired by the natural world experienced at sea. Her thoughtful and sensitive songwriting offers an insight into the modern seafarer’s life. Chloe’s voice, coupled with her harp playing, form a haunting combination perfectly suited to the reflective nature of her material. In her recorded work she blends field recordings of the natural world with that of the harp to create an evocative backdrop for her emotive lyrics and melodies. Her music offers a unique maritime narrative, a voice of the female seafarer. Of mixed Indian and Welsh heritage, and crossing boundaries in her career at sea, Chloe is keen to explore breaking down cultural and gender barriers through the language of music.
