Strange Fruit by Lorine Chia

Strange Fruit” originally started out as a poem written by Abel Meeropel to show the racism going on in America, particularly the south. Billie Holiday then put her touch to it, and now we have a 21st century rendition thanks to the Cleveland native Lorine Chia. The mellow pianos are cut through by Chia’s distinct soulful vocals, with a vocal range that’ll give you shivers. The song is made all the more eerie by only the use of a piano and vocals with slight glimpses of futuristic sounding synths. Chia currently has a mixtape available, entitled Lorine, which you can stream and download from her Soundcloud. Lorine’s next project is a re-issue of her mixtape entitled Lorine: Redux, which is due out later this year.
