Introducing: Coffee with BAO

I’m really excited to launch my new show Coffee with BAO. It’s a series where I have coffee with people in business, music, entertainment, pop culture, and more. We chat about their roots, process, personal and cultural identity, and personal growth. Coffee with BAO is a Youtube video series and an audio podcast available on all major podcast platforms.

Watch Episode 1 featuring Director, producer, and storyteller Hieu Gray:

My first episode features fellow Vietnamese American creative Hieu Gray. Hieu is a director, producer, and storyteller whose Asian American immigrant story starts in Vietnam, makes detours in Indonesia and Hong Kong, and spans a childhood in Georgia. Formerly, Hieu worked for years as an award-winning producer at CNN on shows including Larry King Live and Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown.

More recently, she’s been an on-camera superstar in her own films, including a short food documentary film “Quan 13,” which she also produced and directed. The film features a soundtrack by BAO and is screening during the month of October 2020 at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival. Get passes at festival.vcmedia.org

Find Hieu Gray at hieugray.com or find her Instagram @lapetitebelle_eats

It takes a lot of time and resources to create this content and your financial support is super-duper appreciated. I don’t even eat, I just survive on the coffee that you buy me!

New Release: A Little Bottle of Tears (Original Soundtrack)

Several years ago, I scored a soundtrack for Jess Iglehart’s short animated film “A Little Bottle of Tears.” I decided to release it as a soundtrack album so that the music can live on its own. So here we are.

The soundtrack is broken up into three parts and, to mirror the aesthetic of the film, it combines old sampled sounds with new digital sounds. Watch it for yourself on Vimeo and check out Jess Iglehart’s latest work on Instagram. 🙂

Video: “Do The Move” Live at the Viper Room

BAO’s very first live show was in September at the Viper Room in West Hollywood. We shot some footage and our friend Dave helped put this little video together. Hope you dig it. We’re also starting to book more shows upcoming, so contact us if you’ve got an event for us.
