Trang Thuy Nguyen was born in Sacramento, CA when her parents, Hue Dai Nguyen and Loi Thi Ngo, immigrated to the United States after the Vietnam War. Her love of music didn't begin to develop until at the early age of seven, following her parents' introduction to their favorite hobby...karaoke. She started performing and developing her singing voice through small karaoke parties held by relatives and family friends. Her favorite past time during her elementary school years was going out to the backyard so that she could compose songs in silence. It wasn't until she was fourteen that she began to take music seriously after a friend heard her sing karaoke and suggested that she create a demo. From then on, she started attending recording sessions and working with various local artists. As her passion for music grew, her parents and relatives began to question her pursuit of music as a career. When her manager discovered her at the age of eighteen, her family finally began to believe that music was a serious option. Trying to appease family and cultural concerns, Trang agreed to study pre-medicine in the molecular cell biology major at UC Berkeley while performing at local venues in Sacramento and the Bay Area, including the California State Fair. Later, a tragic event occurred where both of Trang's parents were shot and killed in an attempted robbery while working in her uncle's store. Faced with the task of caring for her five younger siblings, she relocated them to the Bay Area so that she could continue her education, as her parents would have wanted her to do. While settling into her new role as single parent to her brothers and sisters, Trang was determined not to allow her added responsibilities to stand in the way of her music. More passionate about music than ever, she devoted her little extra time to writing and recording music in the studio. Now a year later after the tragedy that touched and changed her family, Trang has completed her debut album titled 'Deep Inside' which includes a song that she wrote in dedication to her parents' memory. 'Deep Inside' is set to release in stores on October 1.
