Tonie Nguyen

Tonie Nguyen

Biography

Tonie Nguyen [they/them] is a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Tonie uses music to create safe spaces for their community to be emotionally vulnerable and feel less alone. Tonie has played in spaces such as The A.R.T./N.Y.,  Green Room 42, 54 Below, Ars Nova and the Knitting Factory in shows such as Broadway Sings: Mariah Carey, DirectorFest 2022: Girlfriend, and various pop/RnB acts in the NYC area.

When not onstage as a session musician, Tonie writes and produces indie pop music as TONIE (featured on Spotify’s New from NYC: Pop, Mobangeles, From the Intercom, and more). Their music makes you cry in all the best ways. They want to expand what American pop music can talk about and explore topics such as mental illness and their experiences in the queer Asian American diaspora. Through their music, they create intersectional dialogue between the Asian American experience and mental health stigma.
