Han Ho (1972), Native Coloradoan, began playing guitar at age 13, after taking one of his brother's guitars and restringing it to play left-handed. Studied music performance for a short stint at Loyola in New Orleans, but spent the last 12 years in Austin, Texas, where the majority of growth in his music took place. Someone once described Han's sound as, "music without the preservatives". One reason might be because he does not play with a band very often. His music has been compared to James Taylor, David Wilcox, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer. He grew up listening to Cat Stevens, Beatles, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Bread, Billy Joel, to name a few. Han's latest CD, Life Belt/March 2010 (3rd cd), was held at Austin's Cactus Cafe, the likes of which Towns Van Zant, Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, got their early start. But he has already begun preliminary recording and mixing at Alta Vista Recording...

Born in Saigon, Vietnam, Han fled the war with his mother and 7 of 10, brothers and sisters in 1975, 3 days before The Fall. Two sisters stayed behind to await the news of their father, who at the start of The War, had been captured by the Viet Cong, and would remain in a concentration camp for 10 years, until his eventual release. A church from Denver, Colorado sponsored his family, provided then with a home, as well as all of the support and provisions necessary for making their transition as easy as possible. At the age of 10, Han's mother died in a drunk driving accident, but fortunately, his older sister turned 21 that same year, and the family did not have to be put up for adoption. Most of Han's siblings exhibit artistic quality in some form or fashion. Younger sister, Malaya, teaches jazz/ballet at the Edge Studio in Los Angeles, California. His older brother, Quang, is a world renown fine oil painter who resides in Denver, Colorado.

Recently, Han was showcased on Fox News 7, Good Day Austin, on election day, where he was interviewed and performed a couple songs from his Naive Man Album to a live, televised audience. Portland's radio station, KINK fm ( whose director created Denver's KBCO as well as Austin's KGSR), also spotlighted Han on their local music spotlight, and played track 5, Cut With The Talk, from his Life Belt Album. Rodney Pinz Productions, whose music videos usually revolve around hip hop artists, was drawn to Han's music and felt compelled to film a video of Han performing one of his new songs, Maybe I Might, which can be seen on Youtube...
