Shere Thu Thuy was born and raised in Vietnam and began singing at the age of 15. Her brother, Mike, would sneak her into the clubs directly on to the stage to sing with his band. Inevitably, the music bug and the excitement of performing live on stage encouraged Shere's talents and dreams to move to America in the 70's. This opened the door to pursue her singing and acting career under the stage name Thu Thuy.
Her acting career kept Shere busy in the movies and in television shows such as All My Children, One Life To Live, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Mash, Too Close For Comfort, Divorce Court, Rambo First Blood, etc.
In the late 80's, when disco began to diminish and the New Wave scene arrived, it was a perfect time for Shere and her brother, composer and musician Alan Nguyen, to introduce their style of commercial New Wave pop melodies, which produced a radio friendly sound for the American audience.
Immediately, their song writing talents were attractive enough to catch the interest of music producer Skip Saylor, who helped shape their music to fit the American market. Their hard work paid off as her songs moved rapidly through the music charts. Shere's first hit song was "Gonna Lose My Heart " followed by the flip side called "It's Only You" and later "I Feel Your Love." These songs became very popular through the Vietnamese community and throughout the American market. This brought them much success, not only in America, but also throughout Europe and Asia, such as Italy, Korea, Germany, and England.
During her busy concert touring schedules throughout Europe, Shere discovered that another female artist was also using the name Thu Thuy, so she chose to change her name to Shere Thu Thuy. Music began to change again with a new sound called rap music. Shere went back in the studio and was introduced to Madonna's favorite engineer, David Eng, who helped and introduced funk and rap into to Shere's music and they produced their fourth hit, Prisoner Of Love. Unfortunately, it was around this time when Shere, at the height of her career, suffered a physical injury which put her love for music on hold.
Today, with her established recordings Shere decided to re-release three of her most popular hit songs to the American market. The three songs are in the album called "These Boots Are Made For Walking" They have been digitally mastered and are selling as digital downloads through CDbaby.com
The title song, which is a cover song in this album "These Boots Are Made For Walking" is a Nancy Sinatra song, made big in the 60's. This was Shere's idea to cover this song, with mixed styles of rap, pop and with a hip hop beat. This combination of styles was made possible with the help of the following people, her brother Alan Nguyen, Eric Teggers and rap artist Ya Ya.
Shere has also finished a recently released CD album this year of 2010 with her two brothers "Alan Nguyen and Manh Ha, called Dem Nay, which you can also purchase through cdbaby.com
