Thena Dare is the perfect combination of old-school, well-crafted songwriting and a voice that is fresh and all her own. After exploring her naturally folksy roots in the traditions of such greats as Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon, Thena decided to pursue her interest in Jazz. This pursuit led her to study Voice at the prestigious Thornton School of Music at USC, earning her a BS in Jazz Performance, and lending her years of tutelage under Grammy-nominated Tierney Sutton, and former Count Basie singer Carmen Bradford. The effect of Jazz on Thena's music has allowed her an easy transition into her seasoned mix of Folk, Jazz, Soul and Rock, which she refers to as "FAZZ."

In addition, Thena’s uncanny ability to perform under pressure, singing with maturity and control, yet without sounding contrived, is a characteristic that has set her apart as a session-singer. Hired to sing on Demos for established songwriters in the Los Angeles area, Thena has been honored to have her tracks placed on hold by such well-known artists as Carrie Underwood and LeAnn Rimes.

Thena's goal is simple: to make music she believes in, that others can believe in too. In a world full of people looking for a voice, Thena Dare has found hers.
