“Chou’s work challenges expectations and defies categorization… The emotions in her soundscapes are real threads of the human drama…Simply exquisite, the instrumentalists and Chou’s vocals [are] placed perfectly in the arrangements to create an unmistakable mood.” – The Gazette, August 18, 2015, Thomas Staudter
