As well as this, Chloe has been featured twice in Bass Guitar Magazine and iBass Magazine and performed for the London Bass Guitar Show for Elixir Strings and Overwater Basses. In 2018, Chloe also played with ‘Back N Black’: one of Europe’s leading all-female ACDC tribute bands. 

Chloe rejoined Unkle Bob after a nine-year hiatus, recording and contributing songwriting to their new record ‘Invisible’ released in October 2022. The record features Chloe’s original song ‘The Girl Who Stole The Boy From Scotland’ which gained praise from online and print media. ‘It’s a high point of an already fantastic album’ (Iain Key, 4/10/2022,

In August, Chloe made her debut performance as Alana Springsteen’s UK bassist at The Long Road festival in Leicestershire.

Which model Overwater bass do you play?

It’s a white J4 series with a tortoiseshell scratch plate. It has a 33″ neck and an undersized body, so I’ve named it “Frodo” as an old teacher once commented it was built to match my hobbit-like dimensions. It has J-Retro East pick-ups, which sound lovely and zingy, and I have Elixir strings on it. It looks and sounds wonderfully shiny!

Why do you choose to play Overwater basses?

They are beautifully crafted instruments made by some of the nicest humans on the planet! As instruments, they do everything you need them to and without fuss. Chris and the team have looked after me so well from the word go and listened to what I needed from the instrument they would make me. It’s a real honour to be surrounded and supported by understanding individuals who happen to be incredibly talented at what they do!

How long have you owned an Overwater bass?

I got Frodo in September 2012, jet-lagged to hell after coming home from a few gigs in Beijing.
