Raised with a rich Vietnamese heritage, R&B singer Thuy (pronounced 'twee'), began her musical career in stunning fashion with her first radio record, “Hands on Me”. The record gained widespread support in her Bay Area community after winning KMEL 106.1’s Home Turf contest and cemented her first step into pop R&B success.
Growing up surrounded by music, Thuy treasured pop idols Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, and at 9, she knew she wanted to be a pop star. Whether it was singing karaoke with family, on the stoops of her childhood home in the Bay area, or in the high school choir, Thuy cultivated her natural singing abilities throughout her adolescent years with hopes of manifesting it into a career. However, with no understanding of a what professional career in music meant and no artist she could look up who looked like her, Thuy scraped her dreams and instead focused on school. As the daughter of two Vietnamese immigrants, Thuy wanted to make her parents proud by finishing college and eventually entered the medical field. "Growing up, I listened to artists that didn't look like me. People experience heartbreak and pain in different ways, but I never saw anyone who looked like me deliver that message", she explains.
After giving up on music, followed by a few lackluster years in the medical field, Thuy came across a chance visit to a studio. It was then that Thuy opened her eyes to what a professional career in music could look like and finally decided to pursue her passion. In no short time, she recorded “Hands on Me”.
Since then, the now Los Angeles-based artist has released several records showcasing her angelic vocals and modern R&B stylings. Released in 2017, Thuy's most commercially successful track to date, "All Night Long", had a viral resurgence in 2020 and proved that Thuy’s celestial voice, unrivaled songwriting, and knack for earworm melodies was here to stay. The track’s viral success organically crossed over to streaming platforms and skyrocketed to widespread recognition.
Now having amassed over 75 million global streams across her catalog and garnered support from premier publications and major DSP playlists including Billboard, Paper, Harper’s Bazaar, NYLON, Lyrical Lemonade, Flaunt, Earmilk, KQED, Wonderland, Spotify New Music Friday, and Apple Music Best New Songs, thuy proves that her celestial voice and knack for earworm melodies are here to stay.
2021 marked a turning point for the rising artist who hit many milestones, from releasing her debut EP, i hope u see this, to selling out her first headline show, to working with her favorite brands, thuy is making her mark. Sharing a beautiful and introspective collection of records touching on heartbreak, love, empowerment, and self-confidence, “i hope u see this” is a message to the world and to herself. “On one track, I’m telling an ex why the relationship ended. On another I’m talking about love in all forms. I’m also telling the world and those who doubted me, that I believed in myself and I'm right here, thriving”. i hope u see this arrived when the excitement for her music has never been stronger. Onward to 2022, thuy hopes that her music continues to inspire confidence in others and to be a voice for those who want to feel seen.
As a vocal advocate of the AAPI community, Thuy was a vocal supporter in the #StopAAPIHate fundraiser. Continuing to bring light to the bubbling wave of Asian American artists, Thuy has been featured in the Smithsonian’s playlist curation highlighting AAPI artists as well as featured in NBC Bay Area's Race in America series alongside fellow AAPI leaders such as H.E.R., Amy Tan, and Margaret Cho. Most recently, she was featured in Paper's first feature on Southeast Asian American artists, which highlights “the songstress has carved out a space for herself both within and beyond the community of self-made Asian-American musical artists that have emerged in the streaming era.”
