Chloe Clayton

Musician / Pianist

When I was growing up, playing the piano was a way for me to both express and comfort myself. Music is important to me as I want to be able to pass on this skill to other people, and share the positive impact it can have mentally.

Music to me is like a part of your soul, I truly believe it shows the true colours of someone, it connects to our core emotions like nothing else; if that in the way of making smile,sing,cry, dance, the way certain sonics can take you back in time to a moment or memory, it's truly magical like.

To me music is about making connections, meeting new amazing people. At the end of the day, it's someone's identity and I feel like you can learn a lot about people just by what kind of music they listen to. It's what brings people together.

Music has always been something that has driven me forward and given me a such a simple way to express myself without words from a young age. As soon as I put my headphones on, it makes me feel invisible to the rest of the world and lets me paint a picture on a silent canvas.power to bring people together. It brings me immense happiness to see how music impacts our communities in such a positive way.

Music is how I express myself without fear of being vulnerable or strong and how I attempt to make sense of the world.
