Biography / Info
We are Chameleon. After several mix tapes, long conversations, and the combined drive to make music that is fresh and interesting, Chameleon was born. It was created from the friendship and collaboration of Chloe Lowery and Andrew Ross. Since its inception in 2011, Chameleon has evolved into its namesake, creating a sound that melds varying genres, while keeping both its heavy underlying beat and powerhouse vocals. These are the hallmarks of this band.
Chameleon has been influenced by the successful solo careers of Chloe and Andrew, with bands and artists such as Trans Siberian Orchestra, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Chris Botti, and Yanni. Their diverse backgrounds and influences have been the guiding force while developing their sound.
Conceptualized solely under their joint production company, Center of the Universe Studios in Queens, NY, Chameleon has released two EP’s to critical acclaim. Something in the Water was released in March of 2013 and their latest, The Monster EP, was released late 2013. The Monster EP is home to their recent singles, Anthem and Stay Wait and was featured in Under the Radar’s Magazine January 2014 Digital Sampler. Through their joint venture with Tinderbox Music, The Monster EP has charted in the top 5 of the CMJ charts on college radio stations nationwide. Music videos for both featured singles have gone viral and been played on several major media outlets including Pulse TV and Buzznet.
Chameleon has gained a following in their New York City home, playing the local scene, opening for platinum selling artist, SSXW and being selected as one of Reverb Nation’s Featured Artists.
Chameleon is currently scheduling for their first US tour (2015) and working on their third untitled release.
The Monster EP and Something in the Water are available now on ITUNES.
