Musician and visual artist Chloe Trujillo released her second studio album Mothers of a New Nation via Eleven Magic Music Record Label.
The Parisian born artist dropped a new track each month over the past year garnering acclaim from Rolling Stone, Metal Hammer and Hard Force.
Veteran music producer/engineer Tommy Daughtery (Death Row Records) spearheaded the overall production of the record which includes guest artists such as prodigy bassist Tye Trujillo (OTTTO), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction, Hellride). Chris Poland (Megadeth, OHM) Craig Erickson and Joey Maramba (Velvet Underground’s John Cale) to name a few.
Eager to explore her vocal identity, Trujillo, after her punk-rock/metal era, moved from Paris to New York City and spent formative years performing in cabaret acts, rock operas and Off-Broadway musicals. A pivotal moment came when she began writing without pause, capturing original lyrics and melodies that flowed through her while creating.

Her “Aztec De La Chloe” design was displayed as a part of the “Play It Loud Exhibit” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
