Combining influences of jazz, blues, big band, show tunes, classical opera, rock, country (and even yodeling) and her Native heritage, Nancy is an anomoly that often can't be pigeon-holed into one single genre. Her fans don't seem to mind, responding, "If you like jazz, you like it. If you like country, you like it. If you like rock, you like it. If you like pop, you like it." So she'll keep making music, in whatever form it takes, because "gosh darn it, you like it."

Influences

Sarah Vaughan, Janis Ian, Willie Nelson, Rita Coolidge, R. Carlos Nakai, Heart, Andres Segovia, Bonnie Raitt, John Conlee, Aretha Franklin, Jeff Buckley, Cole Porter, Melissa Ethridge, John Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald, Robert Johnson

Bio

Combining influences of jazz, blues, rock, country, and her Native heritage, Nancy is an anomoly that can't be pigeon-holed into one single genre. Her fans don't mind, responding, "If you like jazz, you like it. If you like country, you like it. If you like rock, you like it. If you like pop, you like it."

A Fort Worth, Texas native, Nancy grew up in the Midwest and then moved to Montana. For 9+ years, she fronted a hard-driving, progressive rock band. This experience and that of her solo gigs honed her performance skills and afforded her the opportunity to open for or appear with numerous national or international acts, including Native American Artists: R.Carlos Nakai, Arvel Bird, JJ Kent; and contemporary artists: Joan Jett, Nazareth, George Thoroughgood, Sammy Hagar, Cheap Trick, Blue Oyster Cult, Night Ranger, Little River Band, Head East, Head Pins, Starship, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Marshall Tucker Band, Big People, Eddie Money, Gary Puckett, Firehouse, REO, The Guess Who, Styx, Big House ... etc.

It was her ambition to sing full-time that led to polishing her song-writing and guitar-playing skills, thus enabling her to tour as a solo performer. Upon the release of her solo CD, "Jenny's Dresser," in December of 2000, Nancy made the final jump from well-known local performer to successful touring act. She chuckles when she says that she would rather sleep in her van on the road (she's logged nearly 130,000 tour miles in her van in the last few years) if it meant she could sing. She has continued to write and record whle performing, releasing her 2nd & 3rd CDs in 2002 ("I Got News" & "God Tunes") and her 4th CD ("Good Reason") in May, 2004.

Nancy now resides in Music City - Nashville, TN
