Conquering The World INCH by INCH
I never know much about a musician’s history until I actually decide to write about it, and musician Inch Chua has showed me she deserves more of the praises and the success that she’s been given, not only for the brilliant evolution of her music but for the all the things she’s experienced in her life. This just made her music show more depth than it already has — from being a loner as a child to a being fired from a band she fronted and later on having her heart broken, these just became inspirations for her to create compelling music.
Inch Chua is a true role model and all the difficulties just proportionately sky rocketed her career, from getting exposure from international blogs from her first EP in 2009, to being the first Singaporean to play SXSW and being brave enough to try and move to the US where making it is much more difficult, yet it all paid off with the creation of her new album “Bumfuzzle” where her homegrown talent was further enhanced by inspiration from her new environment.
I saw Inch Chua twice in 2010. One when she opened during the first day of SINGFEST at Fort Canning Park where Katy Perry headlined the gig and then a couple of months later she toured Manila and played several shows including one at Club Dredd. Her new album Bumfuzzle, will be launching worldwide this August 27 and Japan, Malaysia, her native Singapore and Manila will be in for a rare treat by hearing this new album live.
She released the video from her first single “Artful Dodger” which was shot in the US by director Felipe Soares who has shot films for Apl de Ap of The Black Eyed Peas, Butch Walker and has done commercials for Estee Lauder, and Coke Light to name a few.
She is actually playing several dates in Manila this week starting tonight August 6 at Aracama at The Fort Strip and August 8 and 10 in Saguijo.
