About Joi Chua
With tranquil, easy-on-the-ear vocals that simultaneously break and mend hearts, Joi Chua is an irreplaceable fixture in contemporary Mandopop. Almost always accompanied by airy acoustic arrangements, Chua’s gentle and uplifting melodies effortlessly cut through the bubblegum glitter of the early 2000s on debut album Joi. 2006’s breakthrough single “Watching the Sunrise With Me" encapsulates her Eastern-traditional-meets-contemporary-pop sensibilities. As the bedrock for those memorable vocals, her deceptively sophisticated sound has seen Chua take Mandarin easy listening to a new level.
