After a break from bands for some time, she has been writing and recording in her home recording set up, building up a body of work. Thuy is her latest project . She's back with new material from her life out of the music.
The genre is folk electric, written acoustically on a guitar but then made electronic and experimental. Influences are Joni Mitchel, especially her later albums; Dog eat dog, John Martyn, Goldfrapp, Portishead...
She has a catalog of work which show different periods of writing where the style of each period is distinct showing interesting progression to where it is now. Having never been "famous" but having written all her life her music has the depth and poignancy of life that she couldn't have found any other way.
Due to never reaching the mainstream, her writing has been interestingly enhanced with this and subject matter reflecting the obscurity of this upcoming writer performer.
