Thena’s Story

After studying vocal jazz under 8-time Grammy nominated Tierney Sutton at the USC Thornton School of Music, Thena went on to work with Grammy award-winning writer/producer Busbee, Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), Barry Manilow, Will Gray, John Beasley and Quincy Jones III, to name a few.

In 2008 Thena’s long-time mentor Tierney Sutton invited her to take on a teaching position in the vocal department at the Los Angeles College of Music. Thena accepted, and went on to found and head the Songwriting Program, head the Mentorship Program, and teach vocal performance classes, until the birth of her second child in 2013.

In 2012 Thena and her husband Ted released their collaborative album entitled Something of Tomorrow, under the name “The Beams.” Thena has four self-released albums to date and is a member of ASCAP. She has relocated to the Sacramento area with her sweet husband and two boys, who are the joy of her life.
