States Chloe, “I am so excited to have signed with major record label Music Masters, because with them, music comes first. It is so rare that artists are able to stay true to their roots long enough to do something timeless, as the industry today is about formula as opposed to talent. Other labels may produce cash cows, but Music Masters will foster the genius of some of the brightest young stars of today, because talent is required, and they have the resources.”
Chloe Pappas is the kind of artist that has it all. She is talented, lovely and has an amazing singing voice and range. Pappas is also a gifted guitar player as well. All and all she is a shining new star. –

Chloe Pappas is one of the most talented female vocals I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my career thus far. It’s not every day you hear a creative blend of soul, rock, blues, with a hint a funk in ONE artist. When I first joined the Chloe’s camp, and heard her music, I was immediately blown away with the energy of her sound, while still maintaining a great sense of musicality.- Steven Robinson- drummer
Chloe has a tremendous amount of onstage charisma that is matched off-stage by her commitment to her craft. This combination all but assures her a place as a future soul-infused star along the lines of the great Bonnie Raitt and other amazing blue-eyed soul sisters! – Tanisha Jackson, artist manager for Morris Pleasure.

Chloe Pappas is an incredibly talented and charismatic vocalist, performer and musician. I had the great pleasure of working with her on a tour in Japan and Korea recently and found her to be not only professional and inspirational but also a joy to be around. She is one of my favorite vocalists I have worked with. I would recommend her highly for anything she would be interested in undertaking.
