Chloë Goodchild is an international singer and innovatory educator. She is the founder of The Naked Voice (1990) and its UK Charitable Foundation (2004), dedicated to the transforming practice of self-awareness and conscious communication skills, through spoken and sung voice. Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë’s discovery of inner sound and silence. This deep encounter with her inner self, catalysed a life time’s experiential research of the voice as one of humanity’s most untapped resources for personal and global evolution and transformation.
Chloe works internationally, demonstrating the power of sound and voice to transform the ways in which we listen to ourselves and each other. Chloe awakens the listeners’ heart with recurring melodies, world chant, anthems, love songs and poetry, interweaving them with her wild stories and much laughter. Chloe empowers her audiences to discover their own voices, in spontaneous ways, which build, expand and flow in a choral fashion, ultimately creating a unified field of awareness, or Singing Field, catalyzed by the shared sound. A depth of silence is often accessed from this Singing Field experience, which accesses a new and all-inclusive ground of listening that is unassailable, open-hearted, and free.
“Chloë is one of the freest spirits I have ever seen on stage” – Juliet Stevenson
