Pyeng Threadgill - vocalist

Pyeng Threadgill's musical roots run deep. Daughter of jazz composer Henry Threadgill and choreographer Christina Jones, Pyeng received her BA in music from the prestigious Oberlin College and was awarded the Mellon fellowship to study music in Brazil. Pyeng continued her education at the Institute for Audio Research and is currently working on certification in the Alexander Technique, a teaching method designed to help change habitual tension patterns and increase movement awareness.

Threadgill received widespread critical acclaim for her 2004 debut album, “Sweet Home: The Songs of Robert Johnson.” On the heels of this impressive introduction, her sophomore effort “Of The Air,” faces up to a tall order. “SweetHome” was named one of the best debut albums of 2004 by the San Diego Union Tribune and C. Michael Bailey in his review for All About Jazz said, “this very well may be the best recording of 2004 to come my way.”
