From an early age, Thao Nguyen knew she “would never be interested in a nine-to-five” career. Clearly, pursuing a career as a musician was the right choice for Nguyen. Thao and her band, The Get Down Stay Down, have released five full-length albums and toured throughout the world since their formation in 2003. The band’s most recent album, We The Common, was released in February of this year. Thao and The Get Down Stay Down made a strong showing at SXSW 2013, including a performance at Paste’s SXSW Party.
