Bio

Inspiration comes in as many varieties as music itself. All you can do is follow where it leads. 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 September morning, and rode it all the way to the release of her 2nd album, You?ve Got Me. ?It almost never happens that a song comes as quickly and completely as ?You?ve Got Me? did,? she says. ?But when the craft rewards you with something like that, you listen.?

Thien has been listening since the end of her college days 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.


Eventually, her path pulled her to New York, where she funded her music with a secure and stable office job. ?I was sinking every dime from my day job into recordings and doing shows around New York,? she says. ?But I realized I wasn?t really dedicating myself enough to music and songwriting.? So she went for it. She quit the job and hit the road.

With her second independent release, You've Got Me, receiving critical acclaim and radio play prior to its May 2005 release, & a year of regular touring both behind and ahead of her, Kirsten Thien is poised for success as a songwriter and an artist for many years to come.
