Biography

Thank you for listening. That is what you need to know about Giana Nguyen. The odds are good that she will literally thank you for listening if given the chance, but more importantly, this sense of gratitude and genuine excitement to be making music is imbued throughout her work. Much akin to fellow singer/songwriters like Sara Bareilles, Colbie Caillat, and Sarah McLachlan, Giana’s piano-based pop/acoustic rock sound is the way she’s chosen to let you know who she is, where she’s been, and what she’s learned.

Though she studied and taught classical piano and sang in choirs while growing up in Orange County, CA, the golden state was not the beginning of her journey. Giana was born in Saigon, during the post-Vietnam War era. During the first 5 years of her life, Giana’s parents did their best to shelter her from the harsh realities of a nation marked by fear and fighting. But eventually, she fled with her father in a massive wave of Vietnamese citizens who decided to create a better life beyond their homeland. Being a child refugee in Southern California is a whole different kind of fight, and the challenges that Giana overcame from that point on made her strong in character and spirit yet generous of heart.

How she came to be established in her true passion of a career of making music, however, was a different path than expected. She had a very brief flirtation with the spark of songwriting within her at age 14, when she wrote her first 2 songs.
