views of Vienna
In the last several months this 24 year
old singer/songwriter and classically trained pianist has appeared
on "Late Night with David Letterman," has toured American
playing clubs, concerts, and in-stores at Borders Books around
the country and has had one of the top five selling independent
releases on Amazon.com. Her career, and her new album came to
national attention through her numerous appearances on NPR. A
computer science major at Stanford University, Vienna has successfully
made a full time commitment to her career as a songwriter and
recording artist in a huge way.
Vienna is an extremely articulate and attractive
Asian American artist whose quick rise to success may seem surprising,
and one listen to her album will provide quick explanation of
what all the excitement is about. She has developed a dedicated
fan base in the Bay Area with her self-released album, which was
engineered and produced by Eric Miller, a fellow Stanford student,
as well as the designer of her website.
Vienna was signed to the independent label,
Virt Records, in May of 2002. The new album includes most of the
tracks from her self-released album, with new tracks provided
by established producer, David Henry, whose previous works include
records with Cowboy Junkies, Josh Rouse, Yo La Tengo, and REM.
