Biography

Imagine you’ve been stuck inside watching the pouring rain for days upon days and all of a sudden there’s a break in the weather and the sun bursts through the clouds and welcomes you outside. Dune Tran’s sound is that first step through the front door where you smell the dewy grass, feel the warm sun on your face, hear the crunch of leaves under your feet, breathe in the crisp air. It’s the beginning of something great, something full of excitement and love, a journey, a promise you’re keeping. And at the same time it’s an exhale from something accomplished, a thankfulness, a pensive moment. Some of her influences are Tori Amos, Aimee Mann, Radiohead and Death Cab for Cutie, although her sound is not a replica of any of these greats as she’s managed to create a unique sound of her own. Her voice is creamy, floating and spirited, backed by smooth and easy melodies on the piano and guitar. In sum, Dune makes you feel connected, which is her ultimate goal. “Music is a huge deal to me. To put some heart into it and to be able to reach someone and connect on a musical level is indescribable.”

The Vietnamese singer songwriter, from Edmonton, Alberta Canada moved to San Francisco 7 years ago to embark on a musical journey. Even though she had no access to lessons growing up, it didn’t stop her love of music nor her desire to play. “I fell in love with the sound of a piano at an early age and knew that one day I’d be good friends with her.” Good friends indeed.
