Thao Nguyen"In a way I think it's better to come from a place that's not as vibrant or alive because you have to infuse your life with something rather than just absorbing it from the outside."

-- Thao Nguyen, who taught herself to play the guitar when she worked at her mother's laundromat. She talks about growing up in suburban Virginia and new CD, We Brave Bee Stings and All on Studio 360 (2.22.08).
