“They say the sky is the limit but I am way out of this galaxy.”
Born in the West African country of Cameroon, Lorine Chia was reared in an environment that instilled the importance of survival skills.
“Being a child there, you’re raised so much quicker,” she recalls. “Because the main focus is survival and making sure you’re independent.”
That independent spirit led her to America where she discovered artists such as Coldplay, John Legend, The Cool Kids, and Kanye West. She took these influences and blended them with music from her homeland to create an interesting fusion of sound that is anchored by her passionate vocals.
Her EP, ONO.MATO.POEIC, showcases her talent and gives her a platform to share her love of music with the world.
“I thank God everyday for blessing me with a talent which I will use to reach out to people,” Chia said. “I do this because it is indeed what makes me happy. Hopefully people will appreciate my style of music.”
