zen string girls


Zen String Girls is the Charlie’s Angels of strings & vocals. This trio is the hottest new group to hit the music market branding the concept of “singing & playing” at the same time. Founded by lead singer T who also fronts rock band Red Abbey, she wanted to create a group unlike any other that was hot, edgy and unique.


Thien-nga Palmer “The Brunette” a.k.a “T” is a vocalist, classically trained violinist & pianist as well as song writer/arranger. She is most well known for her compelling unique vocals & shredding electric violin in National Rock Group Red Abbey that she co-founded. T is also the owner of T Music Entertainment Company, and co-owner of Red Abbey Music School; an entrepreneur to the highest degree.

Sarah Chaffee “the Blond” joins Zen String Girls as the cellist. With her extensive classical training and experience, Sarah brings more than a pretty face into the mix. Sarah has also played electric cello all throughout the world and Las Vegas performing in resorts, stadiums, nightclubs, casinos and all around the world. When she is not on stage, Sarah enjoys spending time as an associate and brand ambassador for Kate Spade New York.

Kiara Ana Perico “the Redhead” rounds out the angels as the second violinist/violist. With a bachelor’s degree of music in viola performance from Boston University and the experience of playing alongside the band Air Traffic Controller, Kiara was ready to commit her life to music. She moved to New York City for a year after Boston, and life has now brought her more permanently to Los Angeles. As a Wood Violin artist, Kiara sports a sky blue six-string fretted Viper on which she performs in addition to her viola and violin.

Zen String Girls is one of the most diverse groups around with their performances ranging from a solo, duo or trio with just electric instruments and tracks or the girls can be singing in compelling harmony while playing string accompaniment; the girls are also able to perform with a band backing them. Zen performs the hottest billboard hits currently on the radio as well throwing in their own original tunes. They truly are the Charlie’s Angels of strings and vocals.
