Thao Nguyen: Spilled Your Thoughts On The Floor

Thao Nguyen grew up and started her music career in Fall Church, Virginia, just outside DC.  She sites the Lilith Fair as her her musical inspiration at the age of 12.  She is also the Thao in the band Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, who are now housed out of San Francisco.  A few months back I came across one of NPR's "Tiny Desk Concerts" featuring Thao Nguyen.  I was easily taken by her creativity and energy.  She's also got some great beat box skills.  Last year Thao toured with Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (better known as Mirah) as the two provided backing vocals for each other's songs.

She's Thao Nguyen performing "Bag of Hammers" off her 2008 solo release We Brave Bee Stings and All.

Thao and the Get Down Stay Down will be touring with the Head and the Heart starting in September.  I happen to be lucky enough to be attending their concert at the 9:30 Club.  You can check out more tour dates and news right here.
