Thao Nguyen – Lead Singer of the “Get Down Stay Down”


Raised in Falls Church, VA, Thao Nguyen first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and began performing in a pop country duo in high school. She’s now a critically acclaimed artist who tours the country and the world with such artists as Andrew Bird, Mirah, Laura Viers and producer Tucker Martine. She even toured the U.S. with the nationally syndicated NPR radio program “Radiolab.” A little over a year ago, Thao settled in San Francisco, CA and started using her music to bring about change for those incarcerated in the SF county jail and CA state prison system. She has just released a new album called “We the Common” which NPR said was infused with “electricity and mischievous boldness.”
