With the release of her triumphant debut mixtape 'LORINE' immediately followed by her pitch-perfect 'NAKED TRUTHS' sophomore LP, Lorine Chia quickly established herself as a favorite among industry insiders and indie music bloggers, garnering the highest praises from the Wall Street Journal, Pitchfork, Billboard, and Vibe. Incorporating a striking fusion of alternative, acid jazz, and futuristic R&B/soul music, her work was hailed as both delightfully nostalgic and refreshingly innovative. After receiving placement on Def Jam recording artist Jeezy's 2015 single "Sweet Life" with Janelle Monae, Chia performed the song alongside the rapper on CBS' The Late Late Show with James Corden. Since then, she has released 'ONOMATOPOEIC', 'INTRODUCTION TO SWEET NOISE', and most recently, 'WHEN MORNING COMES'. Touting praises from leading tastemakers including Rolling Stone, Complex, FADER, and Rookie Magazine, Chia has collaborated with The Game, Wiz Khalifa, Jim Jones, The Cool Kids, Jamila Woods, Chance the Rapper, Lili K, and many more.
