Summer 2017 Starts in Maine!

Dear HOME STATE of MAINE,

You have been so good to me!

I am giddy about bringing my band/trio to Scarborough, Ellsworth and Lisbon on July 20, July 21 and July 23.

I sang my first song in front of people in the state of Maine. My dad had a broken leg or foot and played “Love Is a Rose” for me and it was the 2nd grade in Kennebunk. According to folklore, there was a 2nd (more morose) song in store, but after crowd applause, I turned to Pops and gave the sign — That’s a wrap! It’s all in the tie!

Ming!

In the Studio at Grand Street Recording

Kirsten Thien is currently in production on her fourth studio album. Picking from road-tested songs played at shows for audiences around the world, Thien and Producer Erik Boyd have assembled a world-class set of musicians, many of whom have appeared on past recordings (Arthur Neilson, Steve Holley, Tommy Mandel to name just a few).

As CEO of her budding Screen Door Records label, Thien took a moment during studio time to create a collaborative approach to a new song that will be co-written by the musicians in the studio and a super-secret invited co-writing guest (to be announced).

The new record is due out in Early 2016. Watch for updates soon!

Headed to Memphis Town!

Live at BB Kings Memphis – 2013

Kirsten Thien will be hanging at the IBCs (International Blues Challenge) in Memphis, TN from January 22 – 26. She will make a special appearance at the Blind Raccoon Showcase at Purple Haze as a guest of the Magus Berg Band. Kirsten recently signed Magnus to her own Screen Door Records label after taking him on the road with her band in 2013 – 2014. As she participated in and watched his new release Cut Me Loose unfold under direction of producer Erik Boyd, Thien knew this release deserved her time and attention to bring the record, and the young Magnus Berg’s talent, to a wider audience. Kirsten also appears on the record as a guest singer and co-writer.

In an exciting new step, Kirsten combines her business skills with her musicianship, taking it to the next level and applying what she has learned as a touring and recording artist over the years. Magnus Berg’s Cut Me Loose has remained on the Roots Music Report’s Blues Album Charts top 20 since its release in November. Quite a run for a new artist to the Blues scene with much more to come!

Thanks for tuning in. Thanks for coming out to the shows! And thanks for telling your friends!

We’ll see you in September and October! In my next newsletter I have BIG NEWS to share! But for now…

Rockin’ peace to ya,

Kirsten

New York Show: The Cutting Room July 9

From the desk of Kirsten Thien:

Hello Good People!

As I write this to you, our house guest Magnus Berg (visiting from Norway), sits here in the office, jamming away on my “brand new” 1938 Gibson EH-150 lap steel guitar (my favorite birthday present ever!). We are about to dig into songs for our upcoming shows in NYC, Norway and France.

It is with great pleasure that I announce our next NYC full band show, and answer the question I hear from folks all around the world: “Where do you play in New York!?”
