Cool Woman w/ TRACE

(S4, EP 1) Vietnamese-American singer TRACE joined me as my first guest to kick things off for Season 4.  Fresh off her latest single and video release, "Cool Women", TRACE shared her experiences becoming a singer-songwriter in the American indie music scene, and her relationship with her mother Carol Kim, a Vietnam-War survivor and also a well-known Vietnamese singer in the Paris by Night series.  She went into the struggles of mental health and reconciling her relationship with her father through her music, and the challenges of creating art during the time of the pandemic.  You can check out her music on all streaming services.  Her IG is @TRACE and you can visit her at www.listentotrace.com

Season 4 is sponsored by Red Scarf Revolution (RSR).  RSR aims to bring awareness to the tragedies, atrocities and cultural destruction the Cambodian people endured from 1975 to 1979 under the communist Khmer Rouge regime and how that period impacts us today.  With that awareness, Red Scarf Revolution advocates the silenced art, music, culture,  and language, with designs that incite the resiliency of the Cambodian people.  Visit their website at www.redscarfrevolution.com to check out their merch line and to learn more about their work, or follow their Instagram at red_scarf_revolution or on their Facebook.

Bio:
TRACE is a Vietnamese-American singer born and raised in Fountain Valley, California. In 2016, TRACE brought her first EP,  Low -  to life through a Kickstarter campaign. The 4-track piece earned her comparisons to the “west-coast cool of Lana Del Rey" and the “R&B-kissed ruminations of James Blake,” as well as over 30M streams and her first record deal. In early 2018, TRACE made her Ultra Records debut with her single “Blood and Bones,” followed by two more singles: "Side Eye” (which was featured on The Fader's fall list of "Best New Pop Songs") and "Anxiety." For the latter, TRACE partnered with the non-profit organization (NAMI) National Alliance on Mental Health to raise awareness on anxiety in the entertainment industry.
Last year, TRACE released her 2nd EP--Like Hell and most recently released her song Cool Woman along with the music video which is now out on streaming services.
