Chloe Kohanski is just 23, and hails from Nashville, Tennessee. Before The Voice, she sang lead vocals in a blues band. In an interview with Hollywood Life, Kohanski dished that she didn’t even audition for the show. “There are so many ways to get involved with The Voice. The majority are from open call auditions, but weirdly enough, I received a phone call because I have been playing in Nashville for, like, four years and someone saw me at a show and they called and got my contact info and asked if I wanted to audition. They said they would fly me out for a Blind Audition, so that is what I did.”
