22 December 1988 (age 28)
Inch Chua Yun Juan (born December 22, 1988) is a Singaporean singer-songwriter, musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist. She gained national recognition after being the first Singapore solo artist to be invited to the prestigious South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival. She has since gained visibility with the release of her 2010 debut full length album Wallflower. Her music is influenced by everything from early pop classics, oldies, jazz to alt-rock. Her material is best described as a schizophrenic potpourri of introspective acoustic tunes, chirpy electronica and introspective lyrics.
You might know her from the popular upbeat alternative rock act Allura. Frontwoman Inch Chua steps out on her own to share a different beat. Inspired by singer-songwriters such as Fiona Apple, Roisin Murphy, Shiina Ringo andelectronic acts like Bjork, The Aphex Twin,The Postal Service.Inch's solo project is a clear departure from the boisterous rock singer she is known for. The material is a schizophrenic potpourri of introspective acoustic tunes and chirpy electronica. What remain unmistakable are the pint-sized singer's trademark powerhouse vocals, so expect her to play some arpeggios on her acoustic guitar before hopping onto laying down some looped instrumentations to create live electronic music. Not saying it's a pure one-woman show, Inch invites the listeners to trigger off samples and be part of the creative process, incorporating audience participation intoher set.
