We're pleased to introduce award-winning San Francisco-based classical musician Kimberly Hou and her debut instrumental piano EP "Opus One". "Opus One" finds Kimberly reflecting on the past while moving peacefully, hopefully into the unknown. This is a perfect EP for those who find themselves anxious and in need of calm during these times of self-isolation.
From the artist: I wrote my first EP, Opus One, to offer different perspectives of experiencing various chapters of life. Reminiscing about moments of beauty, wonder, and loss - yet emerging ever stronger, cherishing life and loved ones even more from the present moment onwards.
Stream "Opus One" on Spotify.
Kimberly Hou began piano at 4 years old and has since developed a lifelong love for music.
