Stephanie Chou is a fascinating artist based in NYC. She is a saxophonist, composer, and singer with music focused on Chinese fusion with jazz, classical, and pop. She started out playing classical saxophone and made her way over into the jazz thing, and now she’s trying to take all of her experiences and influences to create a unique sound.
Stephanie Chou – Featured Artist
Stephanie plays a lot of uncommon places you may not expect to see or hear musicians. She plays at a business school doing workshops focused on the intersections of math and music and also how playing in a jazz group is comparable to office and team dynamics. Stephanie’s current project is called “Comfort Girl” which is an exploration of the lives of former Chinese comfort women. It’s not a well-known story, but Stephanie explains how there were hundreds of thousands of Chinese girls abducted by Japanese soldiers. The project follows the life of one particular woman and is jazz for the genre. WOW! She sums it up as a concept album/song cycle.
