Hi, we're Chloe and Taylor. We're Korean-American sisters who live in Atlanta, GA, and spend most of our days with a guitar in hand. When we're not harmonizing or touring in our tiny '08 Hyundai Accent, we're probably stalking Theo Bonaparte on Instagram, laughing at poop jokes, dreaming of one day owning a self-sustaining EarthShip home in Hawaii, or making homemade bread and soymilk and trying to live a #zerowastelife. But all you really need to know is: we're a folk/rock/pop/soul duo (with obvious genre commitment issues). Think: The Civil Wars meets James Bay meets Adele.
We grew up in the frozen tundra of Minneapolis, MN, and have been nearly inseparable since birth. Chloe has always had a knack for singing and playing just about any instrument she picks up, while Taylor is a word-nerd whose melodramatic tendencies make for good lyrics.
We firmly believe there are few problems freshly baked cookies can't solve. We also believe in promoting understanding, provoking critical thinking, changing your mind and working towards positive change. We are driven by a deep curiosity for the world around us and the people in it. Our songs are a reflection of the strangely wonderful (and at times, equally tragic) human experience and our attempt to understand it all. Whatever "it" is.
Folk-pop duo Chasing Lovely combine haunting harmonies, powerful melodies, and insightful lyrics to create a truly captivating acoustic performance. With their latest EP, "Things We Don't Talk About" (July 2017), they candidly open up about both personal and cultural conflict, addressing subjects normally considered taboo. The sisters, who grew up in Minneapolis, moved to Nashville in 2011 and spent six years cutting their teeth in Music City before relocating to Atlanta in April 2017. Chloe and Taylor have been touring across the continental United States the past four years and have had the privilege of working alongside producers and musicians who have worked with Mumford & Sons, Joy Williams, Ingrid Michaelson, Meghan Trainor, Gungor, and Ben Rector. Chasing Lovely's mission is to provoke thought, promote understanding, and capture both glimmers of light and darkness as they share the deeply moving human experience through song.
"Chloe and Taylor are able to weave a vivid tale with their voices and light acoustic guitar that’ll give you goosebumps. This folky pair advocate working toward positive change, and their music is a fantastic reflection of that." –Nicole Ortiz, Audiofemme
Chasing Lovely was originally a fashion blog Taylor created. She got the idea after looking up the definition of "lovely": having a beauty that appeals to the heart or mind as well as to the eye. When we needed a name for our duo it seemed a natural fit. A band, a blog, a way of life. You can see what the blog has blossomed into HERE.
Nope! But we might as well be. We're actually 2.5 years apart.
Guess! (hint: red hair)
Nope! These are in fact our real eyes. (see previous question)
