Midwestern bred, Burlington, Vermont based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Thea Braren is the composer, lyricist, and leader of the group Thea Wren . Her original music has created a growing following for its relatable lyrics and richly layered music. Sublty rooted in Jazz from decades as a jazz vocalist in Minneapolis, her first all original EP In Between (summer 2019), turned the tide with a new vibe of Pop Infused Neo Soul.
Thea Wren produces powerful rhythms and melodies with lyrics from the soul. Her engaging performances are the culmination of a life long calling to connect with people through writing, music, and performance. Dubbed a “ pop-soul powerhouse with an eloquent point of view” by Jordan Adams of Seven Days, Thea Wren writes and performs with a resonating conviction and connection to the preservation of the human spirit. Thea Wren’s freshman album, In Between, was ranked #8 out of the top 12 albums for 2019 by Seven Days, and her newest release Bluebirds and Butterflies ( May 2022) has continued her pop-soul lyrical approach to meeting current issues with danceable beats and liberating energy.
Drawing her inspiration from life’s stories, intricacies and changing times, Thea Wren weaves powerful rhythms and melodies with an engaging and energized stage performance. Supported by her team, Ezra Oklan on drums, Jeremy Mendicino on guitar and bass, and Ira Friedman on keys, Thea Wren’s shows will have you on your feet and lift you up.
Our performances have taken us all around the state of Vermont, the East Coast and SW Florida. We were featured on the Top Block Stage at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival and showcased at the Flynn Theatre's, Flynn Space as part of Burlington's First Night New Years Eve Celebrations, playing to sold out crowds.
