“The simple purity of Chloe Goodchild’s melody line, sparks a whole series of core emotions too long buried” – Lord David Puttnam
“Chloë has a voice of mesmirising purity. She possesses one of the freest spirits I have ever seen on stage” – Juliet Stevenson
“Chloe is a spectacular genius of this performance art” – Coleman Barks
“Chloe Goodchild’s clarity of tone – both in her CD’s and in her books – penetrates to the bone. I revel in both her songs and words, especially when she surrenders to the mystery of devotion. In the West we usually shy away from pure devotion, often for legitimate reasons. But Chloe evokes the open, trembling, courageous heart of devotion that more deeply invites us into the danger of living. I celebrate and recommend her work.” – Gangaji
“Out of nowhere, Chloe Goodchild’s naked voice, soaring with a range that one would have believed impossible.” – Times Literary Supplement
“Chloe is a teacher of the divine kind. She has both feet firmly planted in the human realm, her heart and head dancing with humor and intelligence and her spirit a pure channel to the Divine. I’ve had the fantastic luck to meet and work with a number of the 20th centuries greatest teachers on the spiritual and artistic paths, and the instant I met Chloe (in Montana!) I knew I’d met a profound guide to the fantastic and complicated millennial consciousness. She works through the Voice. What other human ability carries the collective more than the Voice … language as vibration … as prayer … as incantation. She reduced the complicated pantheon available to we homo sapiens, to that which is available to all of us walking this Earth, the Voice. it contains the Breath and primordial Sound and we use it every day! She guides you back to You. If you get a chance to work with Chloe, do it! In the meantime she has numerous CD’s available through Sounds True, iTunes and your local music store, that are so familiar and intimate that you can practice her techniques in the sanctity of your home and travel the waves of Naked Sound with her incorporeally. You won’t regret it, and more than learning to use your own Voice with a capital V, you will find a tried and true way to your own center, your own connection to all that is, the Cosmos, the quantum level of existence… in short, the Divine. BTW Chloe’s path sparkles with beauty and humor, so it is a fun path as well!” – Simone Lazzeri Ellis, HuffingtonPost.com
“Thanks so much for the music on Saturday night at Findhorn. I can still feel the energy! I found listening to your music painfully and joyfully intense. The pain was an intense longing for truth, love and union. I loved the silences at the end of the songs. It’s as if a new world was going to reveal itself in that magical moment” – Tom, May 2010
