Go into detail on why you decided to choose music as a career.

Music has always been a passion for me. Being a music journalist too, I’ve always been into writing about music as well as the songwriting side of things.

 

I decided to choose music as a career simply because it’s all I’ve ever known. It’s a passion for sure, but it’s more of my life. I live and breathe music; I know it sounds cliché but it’s true.

.

.

Brief us on the feedback you are getting from fans on your music.

The feedback for my music has been amazing! I’ve been creating a stronger fanbase online while in isolation for the coronavirus by doing live-streams.

 

The feedback for Judgement Day has been crazy and I’m over the moon.

.

.

.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

Social networking has its cons but mostly benefits for me.

 

Cons being I’d much rather, as anyone else would be able to interact in person.

 

Benefits, however, are endless. Like I’ve previously said, I’ve created a stronger community online through social media and the support has been heartwarming for my music and me.

Tell us how you record your song.

I recorded the track at home. It started off as a solo bass number with just bass and vocals.

 

I then sent off the stems to my boyfriend and he worked his magic with the production for the drums.

 

I was blown away with how it sounded when I got it back that I had to release it to the world.

.

.

 

Tell us the story behind the song.

Judgement Day is about confronting my fear of love and just finding out the answer if the person I liked, liked me back.

 

It is different to my other releases before, but at the same time it isn’t, because I’m staying as true to myself as possible.

.

.

.

State your musical skills.

I’m a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist (Guitar, Bass and a bit of Piano here and there), and a music journalist for a few magazines.

 

My main strength is songwriting and writing in general.

.

.

.

 

Tell us how long it takes to complete a song from the start.

Usually when I song write it flows and I have it all written and arranged within an evening (couple of hours).

 

When writers block strikes, it could take me a couple of days which I guess is still quite quick.

 

I’m influenced by people, places, smells, basically anything, so I’m always songwriting.

.

.

.

 

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

I develop lyrics from my thoughts mainly and how I’m currently feeling with the world.

 

Obviously with the current climate of the Coronavirus, my songwriting has been slightly different with isolation being a main topic.

 

I try and do the opposite of my lyrics with melody writing. Say for example if the lyrics are upbeat and vibrant, I like to try and make the melody slightly darker than you think.

 

My songwriting is quite melancholic but there are elements of vibrancy in the roots.

.

.

.

 

Discuss music in full detail.

Music is another language to me. Speaking fluent ‘music’ makes me able to say things I wouldn’t be able to state in English. It lets me speak and come out of my shell.

 

I’d say I’m quite a timid, shy person at times, but when music is around, I feel I can be my true, happy self.

.

.

.

 

State your five favourite genres of music with reasons.

Shoegaze/dream pop, purely because of how it has elements of different genres in one. Usually with shoegaze music, there are fragrances of indie in the mix but also noise-rock/pop and I just love that.

 

Jazz -Fusion. As a bass player, I listen to grooves in jazz and artists such as Esperanza Spalding and Mahavishnu Orchestra just blow my mind with their craft.

 

Trip-Hop. Bands such as Zero 7 and trip-hop in the 90s/00s is another go-to genre of mine simply because of the groove underneath the mix. I love how simple lyrics can be underneath a crazy arrangement too.

 

 

Classic Rock/Alternative Rock/industrial.

Hard-hitting and a whole other level of attitude. Bands like Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters have always had a close spot next to my heart because of their rock and roll pure charisma.

 

Grunge. I think everyone should have gunge in their top 5 at some stage in their life simply because it’s in-depth and personal. Bands like Soundgarden and Nirvana were aggressive but the deep lyrics underneath the arrangement are heart-wrenching most of the time.

.

.

.

 

Discuss your rehearsal.

I try and practice bass and guitar as much as I can. Usually, my rehearsal just ends up with me writing more songs and being productive.

.

.

.

 

State your favourite musical instruments.

My favourite instrument is bass 100%, purely because of its language.

 

Bass speaks to me like no other instrument. I can make my way around the fretboard easier and with the guidance of the instrument. I feel most comfortable when playing bass.

.

.

.

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

I feel when I play smaller shows like Female Voices Night in Birmingham at the Tower of Song (A show that I host for female artists to showcase their songwriting), the audience really listen and you can hear a pin drop – it’s that intimate.

 

I feel the chemistry between the audience then makes my heart stop and even makes me feel quite nervous at times. If you’re enjoying your own performance, I think that can take into account for the audience’s opinion too.

.

.

.

Discuss your personality in full detail.

I count myself as quite a colourful person purely because of the rainbow hair.

 

I’m an over-thinker (who isn’t, right?) and quite timid at times, but deep inside, there’s a hippie, energetic girl that’s fighting to come out.

 

 

I suffer from a health issue that affects my true personality at times (exhaustion disorder) making it hard, but I always try and be as colourful and positive as possible.

.

.

.

Discuss your music career.

I began my musical career in 2014 when I started a music course at Kidderminster College.

 

That course made me who I am today. Learning what to do in the business as well as being confident on stage, I’m forever grateful for Andy Edwards of the college for guiding the way.

 

I left college in 2018 and have released an EP and a single so far. I’m currently working on my debut album due for release later this year.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

Being featured in the Express and Star on a whole page titled ‘Multi-talented Chloe is the one to watch.’ That was a big step for my career and I’m still overwhelmed by the support that the Express and Star give me.

 

Supporting my musical idol Nick Harper twice. Both shows were an absolute dream come true and something I’ll remember for the rest of my life.

 

My track ‘Zap’ from my Thalamus EP being played on BBC 6 Music. That was a crazy moment that I’m still on a cloud from.

 

There have been so many memorable experiences that I’m forever grateful, I could be here all day if I listed them all.

Chloe Mogg returns with trip-hop wonder Judgement Day on March 14th

 

West Midlands based Chloe Mogg is back with her first release in two years. Entitled Judgement Day, the single is to be released on March 14th. Currently recording her upcoming debut album, the track pauses that progress to showcase a wider horizon in the songwriters’ repertoire. With previous release ‘Thalamus’ showcasing an alternative folk-influenced side with trip-hop, the solo artists plummeted into her dream genre with temptation. Creating music with no limits, the alternative artist experiments in any colourful realm.

 

Chloe mentioned; I wrote Judgement Day years ago about confronting my fear of love and just finding out the answer if the person I liked, liked me back.

 

Alternative folk/rock/grunge/trip-hop/industrial have always been my main influence/style and I’m finally bringing in the trip-hop/industrial part of me fully into the mix. It is different from my other releases before, but at the same time, it isn’t, because I’m staying as true to myself as possible.

 

Mostly self-produced, the track was arranged and mixed with help from Mirron Webb (Hey Jester and Guitarist for Chloe Mogg) and mastered by sound engineer Rob Groucutt. With previous releases from the Thalamus EP gaining support from BBC 6 Music, BBC HW, and across the globe, the songwriter has also been featured exclusively in the Express and Star. Set to release her debut album later this year, that songwriter sticks to a no boundary style in her music and unleashes a true, new direction in her music with ‘Judgement Day’.

Love for Chloe Mogg

‘One of the hardest working musicians in the Midlands who’s gigging almost every night of the week, fair play!’

– Andrew Marston BBC

 

“Firstly, you notice the hair. Long, flowing and daubed in rainbow colours it’s like all the magic of Glastonbury Festival rolled into one haircut”

– Leigh Sanders, Express and Star

 

Online Love for ‘Judgement Day’

CLOUT (Kieran Rogers) – ‘The track is a showcase of everything that makes Chloe and her sound unique, its introspective and thoughtful lyrics, its wide pallet of influences and styles, it is a track that is unmistakably Chloe Mogg, but looks to expand and evolve her sound.’

 

New Noise Magazine (Cameron Carr) – Our Bandcamp of the Day is Chloe Mogg’s “Judgement Day.” High, lilting vocals over trip-hop-inspired beats make it a step away from the singer’s usual fare.

 

Reyt Good Magazine (Matthew Bond) – The closest likeness I can give you is Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’ in the sense that at no point does it oversell itself, at no point does it rely on any unnecessary gimmicks to create an atmosphere of tension, and at no point is my attention to the song averted. Fantastic.

 

SLAP Mag (Kate Ford) – ‘An artist that boys to stay as true to herself as possible will always deliver tracks designed to strike a chord amongst us.’

 

Indie Midlands (Rita Dabrowicz) – “Judgement Day” heralds a new direction for Chloe. She has always walked a solid path between rock and pop but with this release, she’s taking a turn into pop/contemporary urban territory with great results. The song comes with a pulsing beat, hypnotic guitar arrangements, and mid-tempo beat.

 

Sounds Good Blog (Adam SG) – “Judgement Day” is a song that immediately commands attention. Steeped in ethereal synthesizers, the song creates an atmosphere that’s filled with life.

State your artist’s name and elaborate on it.

My artist’s name is my real name as well. There’s not many ‘Mogg’s’ around, ha-ha.

.

.

.

State the title of the song and the meaning.

‘Judgement Day’ title came around because the meaning of the track made me feel this is now or never. If they don’t like me back, it’s time I moved on.

 

Judgement Day is about confronting my fear of love and just finding out the answer if the person I liked, liked me back. It is different from my other releases before, but at the same time, it isn’t, because I’m staying as true to myself as possible.
