Knitting Factory Presents
Alvarez Kings, Anarbor, Shiffley, Chloe Lilac
Shiffley has a knack for mixing surfy summer vibes with sinister synth mayhem. Since the release of their first full-length album ‘Paper Cranes,’ Alex Ganes (vocals/guitar), Alex Jenks (keys), Bryan Contreras (drums) and Shaune Killough (bass) have been farming their tracks around the NYC area. With numerous success in TV placements (E!, TruTV, MTV and Travel Channel), and opening slots for acts such as Twenty One Pilots, Plain White T’s, and Vinyl Theatre, the Queens-based band has seen no shortage of success since their inception.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Chloe Lilac is an up and coming artist who spent her early years on the F and G line. She discovered her love of music at a young age, and began sneaking out to perform on the streets of New York when she was 14.
After a few months of nothing but her voice and a guitar, she decided to start producing her own music. She spent the first year learning the ins and outs of music production, and was then introduced to Warner Chappell producer Bobby “Beewirks” Yewah (Pusha T, Chris Brown, The Dream, SZA). The two became fast friends, and collaborated to help Chloe further refine her voice. The resulting sound was a blend of moody, thought provoking melodies and atmospheric beats, which flawlessly accompanied her somber tone.
Chloe’s lead single, “Reckless”, marked a fresh stage in her career, which was conveyed by her new production and lyrical growth, capturing the essence of modern day youth culture. "Reckless" broke the top 5 on the US Spotify Viral Chart and also charted globally.
The Brooklyn native is already making waves in the music industry with her smooth vocals that evoke shades of a young Fiona Apple and laid back musical stylings. "Xanax got nothing on how I feel," she croons on her follow up single “Thread”, hanging on to her love by a mere thread. Noted as being "blue pop," her tone is melancholy, but her talent will make the listener anything but depressed. With her tales of young lust and the intoxicating experiences New York City has to offer, Chloe Lilac is set to write you a story worth listening to.
