Inspiration for Kirsten Thien arrived one lazy Sunday morning in NYC, and she was ready. Whether it was the tele in the corner yearning for attention, or simply the after effects of too much mischief the night before, Thien tumbled into a creative wave that , and rode it all the way to the release of her 2nd album. “ When the craft rewards you with something like that, you listen.”
Thien has been listening since the end of college when, set to graduate from Georgetown University with a finance degree, she finally gave in to her passion and understood what her life was supposed to be about. She ditched the interviews that had already been arranged with the investment banks and started her own band. At about the same time Kirsten was also invited to be the first vocalist for the Federal Focus Jazz Band. In jazz and blues, Kirsten found a whole new well of musical influence and inspiration.
