For Chloe Chaidez, frontwoman of the electrifying rock group Kitten, the trajectory from rock fan to rock star began in carpool. "Growing up my dad had to drive an hour and half every day five days a week to take me to gymnastics," she recalls. Chloe's father, a drummer from LA's early punk scene, used this time to communicate the important things in life to his young daughter: Mott the Hoople, David Bowie, and Led Zeppelin. "We listened to lots of classic rock," Chloe recalls. "But we also played the new CMJ mixes. This is pre-internet and that's how you learned about new bands, from little CDs that came with cool magazines. Bands like Sigur Ross, Band of Horses…"
It's almost as if Chloe Chaidez has been in training for close to a decade and is now ready for the major leagues. She's always had the talent and the belief but now she has the sense of self and identity to back it up. "What's going to make this band different is our live show," says the singer, when asked what truly distinguishes Kitten. "I love being onstage more than anything. When you are up there you can do whatever you want. You can be whatever you want. If there's one person in the back of the room not involved, then that's my audience. I'll do whatever I have to do to blow that person away. I want everybody in the audience to remember where they were when they saw Kitten for the first time."
