Thao and Mirah Team for Album

Thao Nguyen (of Thao with the Get Down Stay Down) has joined forces with singer/songwriter Mirah. The two had recently collaborated on a tour, and now they will be releasing a record together.

On April 26, Kill Rock Stars will release Thao & Mirah, an album that the duo recorded in a two-week span. Both musicians work with Air Traffic Control, an organization that teams musicians up with social advocacy. If When the two start touring behind their upcoming album, they will be promoting social causes at the same time!

You can hear Thao & Mirah on April 26. Until then, check out the song “How Dare You” recorded for a Yours Truly session a while ago.

Thao With the Get Down Stay Down

I first came across Thao With the Get Down Stay Down in early spring opening for Rilo Kiley. Having no idea who Thao Nguyen was, I was a bit skeptical. To my surprise this girl and her eclectic backing band totally blew me away. Thao plays a bluesy kind of indie rock with a voice that is half crooner half riot grrl. This girl has so much energy especially when she performs live, I’m not sure how she’s not exploded yet. Thao With the Get Down Stay Down are performing all across the country for the remainder of the year.
