The Seattle-based band, THEM, is a new teen pop-rock project quickly gaining momentum. Since the highly anticipated release of their debut single BAD 4 U, the multi-instrumentalist quartet has shared bills with acts including Duckwrth, Blu DeTiger, Dayglow, Charli XCX, Jens Lekman and MICHELLE. They also headlined Seattle’s historic Paramount Theatre with The Black Tones last December for Nirvana's 30th anniversary of their Paramount debut. THEM has taken Seattle’s music industry by storm charting #5 on KEXP within the first week of BAD 4 U’s radio debut, starting the girls off on the right foot. Since then, they have made appearances on KING 5’s Evening Magazine, Jam in the Van, the Stranger, Audiofemme and more. The group, composed of four talented young girls ages 17-20, Thompson, Hudson, Ellie, and Maia started in the basement of their local music school but are just getting started on taking over the genre of pop music. Listen to their debut EP, 'the car ep' out now.
Thompson is 18 years old and a senior in high school. She has been in private music lessons since she was 10 years old. Outside of the band Thompson plays soccer, models, and cares for her dog, Jenny. Thompson loves writing music solo as well as along side the group, she plays piano, guitar, bass, and she sings in the band.
Hudson is 17 years old and also a senior in high school. She asked for a glittery guitar for Christmas when she was in just third grade and that's where her passion for music sparked. She has fallen in love with songwriting and gradually picked up violin, vocals, bass, and piano. She plays violin still in her high school orchestra and plays music to bring joy to the people around her.
Ellie is 20 years old and is studying music business in college. Ellie has been involved in the music for the past five years both performing and working as an admin at a concert venue, for local bands, as well as her local music school. Ellie began piano lessons at just five years old and grew into learning guitar, bass, drums and more recently lap steel slide guitar. Ellie plays mostly piano and guitar in the band but also handles all management, booking and marketing for the band.
Maia is 21 years old and graduated this past year. She is in her third year of college at Seattle Pacific University. She began playing piano 12 years ago, when her parents noticed her starting to play by ear and has since then taken music lessons and has discovered a love for drums as well as vocals being in the choir. Maia plays drums, piano, guitar and she sings.
