Dubbed “Queen of the Denver Scene,” Woo has recorded more than 200 original songs and plays more than 150 shows each year. Her trademark sound combines smooth guitar playing with her original “slaptap” technique, where she uses the guitar body and fret board as a percussion instrument.

Woo’s talent has earned her numerous honors, including Westword Magazine’s “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” five times, which earned her a spot in Westword’s Hall of Fame. She has played at numerous notable venues across the country, including Blue Bird Café in Nashville and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and performed alongside legends such as Michael Franti, Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, Brad Paisley, Carly Simon and many more.
