I work out of JTL Group (Recording) in south Kansas City. I've been songwriting (melody/lyric) for artists on paid projects for the last three years. I've written mostly pop for others. My personal style is more eclectic. As a vocalist I can do many different characters- bluesy and colorful (Billie Holliday), to clean pop tones (Katy Perry).
-Vocals (jazz, blues, pop, r&b, folk, rock, alternative)

10 STARS. Highly recommended. Fast, edgy, fearless and down to earth. Amazing artist.
Chloe was able to see my vision for the kind of melody and sound I was looking for. Her voice is bluesy, warm, and authentic. She really projected the words of the lyrics through her voice. I get goose bumps and emotional every time I listen to the music that she wrapped around my lyrics!! Awesome sound!
Chloe is one of the most creative and versatile lyricists I know. Her voice is an old soul and gives me chills every time I hear her. Her songwriting is passionate and moving, and I can't say enough how beautiful her melodies are. Chloe's a captivating singer-songwriter and even more beautiful person. You'll have no regrets hiring her.
Chloe finds the lyrics that tie everything together and make the song cohesive, all while writing soulful melodies that are stuck in your head hours after the session. She's the best.
I've hired Chloe for two lyric writing sessions and have been blown away! Super easy to work with and super creative! I'd give 6 stars if I could.
It is always an honor working with Chloe! She has a beautifully unique voice and is very smart when it comes to vocal melody. I would definitely recommended her to anyone looking for quality lyrics and vocal top-lining!
Chloe is amazing lyrics, and comes with really creative melodies. Overall great experience!
Interview with Chloe Jacobson
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: The most common feedback I get is that my music is moody, emotional, and sounds like it should be in a movie. If I was going to classify it in a genre I would call it the indie- folk stream of alternative.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring my vocabulary and my voice. I try to never overpower an artist vision. It's important to gauge the amount of direction and input that they want- or even need.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill as a writer is probably my ability to find new ways to say old sentiments.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Usually, if I'm in a paid session, I'm working on pop music that aspires to be Top 40.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Music has always been a part of me. I've been writing poems and have had melodies bouncing around my head forever. My studio experience in writing for other artists has been three years. I have a lot of life ahead of me, but this is truly my passion and I will work as hard as I can, wherever I have to.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: I would take my dinky Cordoba ukulele, my iPhone (voice memos=it all), my friend, Jared's telephone mic (which is a powder- pink, old- fashioned telephone retrofitted as a dope microphone), an upright piano, and a Shure SM7. ^^ these may seem basic and lame, but they inspire my creativity so, oh well.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I HEART problem solving and finding creative ways to express common ideas. I love how magical simple words and phrases can be. The spectrum of human emotion is so vast, I know that as a race we will never run out of things to sing about. Also I really like working with real people in real time. I get a lot of what I need to be creative by feeding off of other people's energy. Basically, I'm inspired and intrigued by what inspires you.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Bruce "Codak" Carter is a good friend and associate of mine. He is an incredible top-line melody and lyric writer, also based out of Kansas City. Also, Zane Callister (Young Collective), is a super talented film composer, musician, and producer that I've had the joy of getting to know this last year. My good friend Jared Logan is the owner of JTL Group. He is a phenomenal producer, engineer, and drummer. They're all true professionals who have spent years mastering their skill set. Not to mention, that they're cool people who are fun to work with.
