Heartfelt lyrics, sincere vocals, dynamic instrumentals, and a set of identical twins: Chloe & the Steel Strings, an Americana Folk-pop outfit, bring back the authentic, heartfelt singer-songwriter nostalgia of the past with great hair, good vibes, and astounding live performances.
Hailing from the Toledo and Cleveland, OH areas, Chloe & the Steel Strings cultivates a unique sound that is often compared to the styles of Norah Jones, Jewel, Fiona Apple, and Sharon Van Etten.
“Their songs are catchy and melodic but utilize instrumentation and movements alternative to what people consider norms of pop” says NW Ohio music staple Jake Pilewski.
Band members Connor Ward (bass), Anna Wagenhauser (piano & vocals), and Eric Stuehr (lead guitar) were classically trained from a young age and agree that it’s the foundation for the group’s tight performances and creative songwriting style.
“I’ve always been passionate about writing songs" lead singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist Chloe Wagenhauser explains. She describes her first performance with Connor at a coffee shop near the University of Toledo, where they met at an open mic night.
“Back then, we didn’t know that writing and performing were something we’d pursue as a career,” Chloe says, reminiscing
on her decision to decline a medical school acceptance in late 2017 to play music full-time. Since then, the band has played more than 250 shows across the Midwestern U.S.. They look forward to releasing their next EP in mid-2020.
