Giana NguyenIrvine, CA, United States
Dancing Keys Music Studio
Giana is a professional singer/songwriter and is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
Growing up, she studied classical music and subsequently taught piano in private and semi-private settings while concurrently going to college and pursuing a career in the healthcare industry. For a short while, she broke away from music to focus on her healthcare position, but after much soul searching and reflection, she made a leap of faith and left her career in health care to follow her true calling in music. Giana started teaching piano again and independently released her self-penned debut album “For Now” in 2011.
That debut album garnered recognition from new media makers around the world, and she was a nominee in the 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Awards for “Best Pop Song” and the 2012 All Indie Awards for “Best Pop Artist.” In 2015 she released 2 singles, “Sing” and “If We Knew Then” and in 2018 a new E.P. “GiANA” was released containing a collection of 5 originals and 1 cover song. In February 2020, right before pandemic shut downs, Giana released her latest single “Magic” in 2 formats – fully produced and acoustic. Giana’s music can be found on all digital platforms and featured on various playlists and podcasts.
Giana has performed at notable venues such as the House of Blues in Los Angeles, the Whisky A Go-Go in Hollywood, and at the Honda Center in Anaheim where she sang the U.S. national anthem for the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Lakers. In the local community, Giana has performed in 8 CHOC Follies musicals to support CHOC Children’s Hospital. She is a former board member of 8 years with the Vietnamese American Arts & Letters Association (VAALA).
