Influences

"Lush soundscapes balanced by enthralling melodies.... Personally I believe that Leo Fender smiled when he heard the true voice of his creation in Levi Chen's most capable hands.”
BEAR, Host/Producer The New Sampler, on WWSP 90FM,

“…the symmetry of East and West he achieves lets the two instruments meld their sound together…Levi Chen manages to express himself with a distinctive voice that sets him a notch above a very crowded field.”
New Voice Magazine,

“Few have brought together the ages like string virtuoso Levi Chen… spinning dreamy clouds filled with echoes and eerie twang as if Pink Floyd had been produced by Confucius…”
Mike Bell, Vancouver Echo,

“Levi Chen has concocted an East/West and further west fusion … beautifully fragile melodies draped in ethereal atmospheres.” (*Highly recommended because of it’s musical merit)
John Diliberto, Billboard Magazine
