Sizzy Rocket is the cool best friend you wish you had growing up - the one who doused herself in glitter and moved to New York to start a punk band. And that’s exactly what she did, along with booking her own shows at underground clubs and releasing secret songs via Dropbox to her rabid Twitter following. Since then, Sizzy’s work with top tier producers and a brief stint at NYU’s Clive Davis School of Music landed her a publishing deal with Universal Music Group at just 20 years old. To date, she's racked up writing credits with the likes of Noah Cyrus, Bea Miller, Hey Violet, and Anitta.
In 2016 Sizzy Rocket released her debut full-length album THRILLS to a sudden swarm of screaming teenaged girls online, now aptly named “the cult”. The lead single "Bestie" was called an “unfairly catchy pop song” by New York Magazine and reached top 20 on Spotify’s UK Viral Chart. The follow up, surprise mixtape Hot Summer, dropped in 2017 via Popcrush with a series of DIY music videos and riot grrrl- inspired zines and essays - it even received a nod from feminist punk icon Kathleen Hanna.
When she's not trading fan mail with her cult, Sizzy is either building her own independent record label or on the road. Last year, she joined Epic Records artist Lauren Sanderson on two nationwide tours and continues to play packed houses all over the country. Currently, Sizzy is gearing up for her second full-length album and headlining tour this summer.
The first decade of adulthood is marked by massive change and growth, and working through it has only become more difficult with the advent of social media. chloe mk’s unique brand of “internet-pop” navigates what it means to be young and alive in the digital age and the vast range of emotions that come along with it.
Born and raised in Nashville, chloe mk found an identity in classic rock and cut her teeth playing in small clubs and bars before auditioning for a spot on NBC’s The Voice. After winning the show in 2017, she relocated to New York City and signed a record deal with Republic Records. Her debut EP, Fantasy (scheduled for release this summer), might seem like a departure from her original sound, but it’s a more transparent representation of the singer than anything she’s done to date.
“I’m willingly walking into the beast of pop music,” says chloe. “It’s completely different from anything I’ve done before, but it’s exactly where I want to be. I really want to portray the stories of my actual life, and I think that’s kind of the beauty of pop — it transports you into the artist’s world and shows you how they see things.”
chloe mk’s songs capture the complexity of the journey toward self-discovery, pairing honest and deeply introspective lyrics with music that teems with optimism and energy. She excels at creating this prism-like fulness on tracks like “To Be Young,” a song about being lost and not wanting to be found, just living.
“Every listener can find their personal truth in this song... in all of these songs. Each track is laced with a euphoric, hyper-real sensation of what it means to be young. And what it means to be alive today.”
