China Forbes (b. April 29, 1970) graduated from Harvard in 1992, cum laude with a Jonathan Levy Prize for acting and went on to take on roles off-broadway for several years. Through that time it was evident that music was also dear to her heart, frequently sessioning with classmate Thomas M. Lauderdale.

In 1995, Forbes released her debut album, Love Handle, under the November Records label. Blending equal parts pop and folk with bubbly yet witty lyrics, the album failed to make an impact even after performing the theme song to the Clueless TV series (1996-1999), entitled “Ordinary Girl”. As fate would have it, aforementioned college friend Lauderdale was the founder of the multilingual/multicultural band Pink Martini and when he and China clicked, she joined the band as lead singer and moved to Portland, Oregon to work with them full-time. They went on to sell millions of records and charm audiences worldwide. China released her long-awaited second album, ‘78, under Pink Martini’s Heinz label on February 26, 2008.
