Be mesmerised by the vocal powerhouse iNCH Chua, one of the movers and shakers of Singapore’s indie rock scene. In this intimate concert, iNCH will enthrall you with her energetic and soaring jazz-inflected vocals as she performs songs from her last album, “Bumfuzzle”, and her newest, as yet unreleased compositions.
A fiercely independent-minded and self-made singer who started out recording in her bedroom on the acoustic guitar, iNCH has never shied away from taking the path less travelled. Dissatisfied with what she thought was the staid state of Singapore rock music, iNCH fronted her first indie rock band at age 16 and later became lead singer of the band Allura, whose energetic gigs won her a cult following within Singapore indie rock circles.
A rebel filled with pluck and passion, iNCH went solo in 2009 and has since garnered a widening fan base at home and abroad. Eschewing more traditional routes of success, iNCH has refused to sign on to a major music label. Instead, she has opted to connect directly with her fans through concerts and social media. She is also a strong believer in the democratising effect of technology, seeking crowd-funding for “Bumfuzzle” on Indiegogo and distributing many of her studio recordings for free or on a ‘pay as you want’ basis online.
Now based largely in Los Angeles, iNCH incorporates her experiences of living in both continents into her music, creating an edgy and soulful indie-pop sound that reflects – in her own words – “the adventures of an indie princess in search of heart-stopping musical tales”.
