The French electronic artist is taking her first album on the road.
Composer and producer Chloé Herry (AKA CloZee) has established herself as one of the hottest upcoming artists on the French electronic scene.
With more than 300 concerts around the world in the past three years, CloZee has performed at top festivals like Coachella, Lightning In A Bottle, Shambhala, Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, Buku, Envision, and Ozora. Audiences love her surprising style-mixing bass lines, funky off-beat percussion, and unique incorporation of world instruments with emotional cinematic sounds. Her tracks are about to reach 40 million streams on Spotify and she released her first full album Evasion this year.
We caught up with CloZee to chat about her music and upcoming worldwide tour.
What is music to you? How would you define it?
Music is a bridge, a universal language. It brings people together and transcends cultural differences. That's what I love the most about it, and this is why I create music.
Where did your interest in music stem from?
I'm not sure. I listened to music all my life, it's kind of part of me. The main catalyst is probably my mother who listened to a lot of different music all the time. There was always something playing in the background when I was a child.
What inspires you?
Anything. Traveling, touring, meeting new people, nature, other artists, dancers, etc.
Which city are you looking forward to the most on you tour?
All of them, but I always have a crush on Denver, CO!
Have you been to NYC before?
Yes, last week's show was my fourth time.
What do you love most about the city?
The high energy and the great community of artists. Also, the choice of all the awesome restaurants. (I love food!)
What do you love about creating music?
The fact that we can collaborate with anyone, regardless of language, country, or culture.
What was your inspiration behind two of your favorite songs?
'Aurora' - I composed this music while remembering all the sunrises I experienced in my life. 'Our Voices' - wanted to compose a powerful track for women after the #MeToo movement started.
Where can readers go to find out more about you?
Anywhere on the internet. But if they want to know something specific, I have a facebook group where you can interact with me directly: https://www.facebook.com/groups/clozeetribe.
What do you love most about performing at festivals?
To play for a lot of people who probably never heard of me before, to try to get new fans. Also being able to check out music before and after my set, and just hanging out and walking around.
Where can fans see you perform live?
I can't announce them yet. I'll be mostly in Europe, but will play a couple of shows in the U.S. this spring.
How would you sum up your music in two words?
What feelings do you associate with your music?
Positivity, motivation, imagination, and confidence.

With social media giants like Facebook and Instagram woven into our daily lives, does a boycott have real weight?
Kim Kardashian has nearly 190 million followers on Instagram, where she's in the habit of posting at least once a day.
If her followers were a nation, they would be the 8th most populous on the planet. But the citizens of Kardashia (Kimeroon? The United Kimdom?) will not be receiving any diplomatic news or thirst traps from their dear leader on Wednesday.
As she announced on Instagram on Tuesday, she is taking part in the one-day boycott of Instagram and Facebook organized by Stop Hate for Profit and promoted by other celebrities, from Katy Perry to Leonardo DiCaprio.
The model has accused photographer Jonathan Leder of sexually assaulting her in 2012.

Emily Ratajkowski isn't one to stay silent.
The model and actress, who's perhaps most widely recognized as "the girl from the 'Blurred Lines' music video," has used her platform over the past few years to engage in notable activism. She was spotted at Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles earlier this year and has been a loud advocate for women's rights, even serving as a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood.
