Sharin Foo is a Danish singer, songwriter, and musician. She is part of the indie rock duo The Raveonettes, in which she sings, as well as plays the guitar and bass.

Sharin’s father is musician Kim Tai Foo. She was previously married to musician Greg Edwards, with whom she has a daughter.

Sharin has stated:

I don’t look too Chinese. I have all the Scandinavian colors, but I’ve got the Chinese nose and the eyes. My grandfather came from a tiny little three-house village in China –— he came to Denmark and had all these girlfriends, and he liked it so much that he had to stay. He started the first Chinese restaurant in Copenhagen. My father is totally Danish, but he looks Chinese.

Not a good mix. Looks like an Albino asian.
