Chloe Matharu, Singer Songwriter and harpist shares ethereal music inspired by her time at sea. Joined by Folk-Rock musician Tom Mallitte.
Chloe Matharu and Tom Mallitte will be sharing music on 23rd October at The Glad Cafe, Glasgow, 7pm until 10pm. Music starting at 7.30pm. Chloe Matharu is a Scottish singer/songwriter and harpist, inspired by her time at sea as a Deck Officer in the Merchant Navy. This gig is part of her UK tour following the release of her debut album, Small Voyages, on 16th September. Special guest, Tom Mallitte, will be joining us from Wales.
Chloe Matharu's music has been described as "truly haunting" by BBC Radio Scotland. Her thoughtful and sensitive songwriting draws on her experience as a Navigational Officer in the Merchant Navy, inspired by the natural world seen at sea. Her music offers a new maritime narrative, thevoice 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. Expect evocative, heartfelt songs set to an ethereal backdrop of harp music. Her debut album, released on 16th September, features an innovative combination of Chloe's compositions blended with field recordings of the natural world.
Special guest, Tom Mallitte, will be joining us. Folk-rock musician, ardent, soulful, waxing lyrical on the plight of modern day love and life. Raised in Pembrokeshire, SW Wales, he's been collecting stories and tales, roving since the age of 16. With a sound reminiscent to the 70's folk scene, he brings a special energy to the stage.
Music will start at 7.30pm sharp. Any queries email email@example.com
