"Toronto singer Chloe Charles boldly reinvents herself as ECHLO"

“She’s bolder and louder, unleashing the full range of her voice and style, which shifts from orchestral pop to R&B and jazz, colouring tracks in fresh ways that Charles never did before, or never gave herself permission to do.” - - Now Toronto

"BTW - Folly & The Hunter, Vishtèn, Kelly Moran, Headstones, Harrison, Ryan Hemsworth, Jaymz Bee, Chloe Charles (ECHLO), Georgian Bay, Audra Santa"

“Breaking free of the past, ECHLO (Charles’ new persona) takes more liberties in its unflinching storytelling and sidestepping sonic signifiers tying it to any particular genre. Reflecting the concerns of her generation, there is a defiant rejection society's systematic conventions, offering a sharp critique of the accepted political, social, and economic principles that hold us captive.” - Cash Box Canada

"Echlo Comes Out From Her Shell On Head High"

“On this record, she fully displays her expressive vocals over a genre-bending soundscape that exudes an ultra-surreal vibe that is just too dynamic to be boxed in.” - Earmilk

"Echlo Shares Visuals"

“‘Got Me Drinking’ is a fiery pop-rock song about the tumult and torture of dating in the modern age” - Indie Current


Still working on that hot first release.



"An echo leaves behind the voices in the background, your inner critic, judgements and only carries the loudest parts of you." - ECHLO

ECHLO, the echo and alias side project of Chloe Charles - the Award-winning orchestral electro soul singer who has been lauded by the widest possible range of media including Noisey Billboard CBC q Rolling Stone Now Magazine and The Times (UK)  for her musical adventurousness, and adored for "weaving the same sort of genre-oblivious musical magic that had people fawning breathlessly over Leslie Feist" by the Toronto Star - releases her debut Echolocation album.

ECHLO is the echo of Chloe Charles' past, looking to start over, only keeping the echoes of the lessons learned and leaving the pain and mistakes behind. The uncompromising tenacity of her work is informed by her Trini-Canadian background, being a black female in Toronto's music scene which is essentially a boy's club, fighting to be heard.  

Naked and daring, ECHLO places a new focus on intent, imbuing subversive social critique into her compelling modern pop gleaning from R&B and electronic explorations. On the transition, Charles divulges, "Much like an echo the delay after the direct sound, this is the embodiment of who I am and it took a long time to get there." The haunt that remains of her echo is the most genuine form of expression, darker and truer.
