BIOGRAPHY

Oh The Nerve is a queer feminist pop/R&B band from Berkeley, California. Led by singer-songwriter and keyboardist Teresa Tuan, they blend the exuberant grooves of vintage soul and lush pop melodies with honest and vulnerable songwriting about the journey of self-discovery and understanding what you want out of love and life.

Tuan formed the band as an outlet to openly and authentically share her personal experience as a queer, first-generation Asian-American woman. “I used to feel unsure about claiming all of who I was, because society loves to reduce people to stereotypes. But I realized there is a bravery in telling your story with all of its rich complexities,” she said. “Oh The Nerve is about celebrating all of who you are and challenging mainstream ideals about what stories are worth being heard.”

Oh The Nerve is proud to be part of the LGBTQ arts community in the Bay Area. The band celebrated the release of their 2018 debut EP, “Sweet Soul Music,” at El Rio, a beloved Mission District queer venue. They were chosen as one of eight artists to perform at Apple’s inaugural SF Pride Weekend event in Union Square. Their ‘90s-themed music video for single “Better Things To Do”—featuring a lesbian detective chasing her criminal mastermind ex-girlfriend to rescue San Francisco’s Karl the Fog (@karlthefog)—was an official selection for the 2019 ClexaCon Film Festival in Las Vegas, which highlighted queer women in media.
