We just returned from a short but refreshing trip to Austin with our friends. In addition to enjoying some wonderful conversations, we were able to attend a very memorable concert performance by singer-songwriter Vienna Teng. She had actually played in Houston on Wednesday evening, but the Friday show seemed to be a better choice for several reasons, not the least of which being the addition of her co-producer and bandmate Alex Wong. Together, they gave the audience more than their money's worth. The two were so in tune with each other in dynamics and precision that it was hard to believe that there weren't some other musicians behind the curtains adding to the magic.
Vienna's newest release Inland Territory will be available on April 7th of this year. I have a feeling that it will top her first three albums, and that's saying a lot since she has created superb musical and lyrical treasures in those previous efforts.
You can get a preview of some of the upcoming music and all the work that has gone into its production by watching the following two EPKs (electronic press kits) for the new album. She gives everything she has in recording and stage performances, and this is just one of the things that make her talent shine forth so brightly. Enjoy!
