Thao with the Get Down Stay Down

Artist: Thao with the Get Down Stay Down

Album: We Brave Bee Stings And All

Label: Kill Rock Stars

Genre: Rock, Folk-Rock

Comments: Thao Nguyen, the adorable 23-year-old Virginia-bred songwriter, has been compared to Feist (though lately, who hasn't?) for her pretty voice and perky music filled with twee guitar, banjo and keyboard. Nguyen met drummer Willis Thompson while studying at William and Mary and his in Environmental Studies and Music. Thao Nguyen and Willis Thompson met Adam Thompson (no relation) during a show at the Harrison Street Coffee Shop in Richmond Virginia. (All of this bio is ripped from Wikipedia). Nice nice work. Track 2 is a winner. Laura Veirs lends a hand of Track 5.
