Chloe Saavedra was born on March 5, 1994. She is the youngest of two sisters and grew up in a family that is familiar with the music.

Chloe met Death Cab for Cutie drummer Jason McGerr when she entered the drum section of the store. In the end, the family bought Chloe a drum set, which cost $600. That was the start of Chloe’s music journey with her sister, Asy Saavedra.

Her sister is also someone who likes music. That’s why young Chloe spent so much time with her sister, honing her musical talent. When her sister was focusing on vocals and the keyboard, Chloe chose to learn drumming.

Both have great talents in music, so they formed a group called Chaos Chaos. It’s an American indie synthpop group that is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York. The group was founded in Seattle in 2000 under the name Smoosh. Then in 2012, they switched to their current name.

Currently, she’s living in Los Angeles, California.

Chloe Saavedra’s Music Career

Chloe Saavedra’s first music career is being the drummer of the band Chaos Chaos. It’s a band consisting of two members, with her sister as the other half-member.

She and her sister formed this band in 2000 with the name Smoosh when she was only six years old. In 2012, the Saavedra sisters decided to alter the name to Chaos Chaos because the word had come to be linked with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi as a result of a South Park episode.

With Chaos Chaos, Chloe Saavedra has released full-length albums like Chaos Chaos (2018) and several singles like S (2012), In This Place (2013), and Improv Song (2019).

The band also had various performances and projects, such as performing This Modern Love by Bloc Party for Lollapalooza 2007, performing a headlining spring tour with The Postmarks, and taking part in some TV series like the animated sci-fi cartoon Rick and Mort.

They also worked together with Justin Roiland to create a song for Kanye West, a fan of Rick and Morty, as a birthday gift.
