“With Chan being in a class all her own, she gave each track a unique spin, mostly due to her fantastic backing band, the Dirty Delta Blues. You can spot Judah Bauer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Gregg Foreman from one of my favorite departed bands, The Delta 72. Obviously, with a name like that, you’re going to hear and fell the sounds of the deep south, a mixture of soul, blues and gospel. With that sound and Chan’s empathetic, gravely voice, you have the makings of a perfect performance.” – Music Snobbery
