       Nancy Elliott ~  A Guitar, a Song & a Story
  Southwestern Americana is the music and stories painted on my heart by a life in the Desert Southwest. I write and sing to share with you the intense, alive, wild and dangerous place in my soul that is forever hungering for big skies, adventure, and a little something to tame because I think that place in is you, too. 

No "voice" could be more authentic than the Ohio River accent of Nancy Elliott....Nancy's feeling for Southwestern Culture gets displayed in each concert she performs. In a mix of historical stories, cultural stories, and contemporary experience, Ms. Elliott displays a warmth on stage few of us can match in daily social interactions. Her guitar and persona create a feeling of being in a room speaking one-on-one with her, even if you're only one of many enjoying her refreshing musical treatment of a polished acoustic/singing/storytelling performance. 
    Bob Atkinson   Tucson, Arizona Poet

 "Nancy Elliott is a friend and fellow songwriter that I admire. She brings considerable talent and ability to the music she makes and a long lived and thought about and very unique perspective to her songs. That's what being an artist is all about No?"
        ~~~Gary McMahan, award winning poet, songwriter & humorist

         " Nancy Elliott has a natural grace that lends a layer of elegance to even the rowdiest western tune.  Her repertoire includes decidedly romantic covers of old classics, hand-selected tributes to strong women, and her own portfolio of love songs.  Nancy's finger style guitar playing is clear and precise, and she knows her instrument well.  A long history of playing solo, or in bands of various sizes has helped Nancy develop a confidence and a style that manifest in each performance.  She has been good for a long time, but she is better now than she was the last time you heard her. "  
       Mike Kirkwood, Concert and Festival Producer  

      " Nancy Elliott is a genuine and talented artist who speaks and sings from experience and from her heart. She has the unique ability to capture her audience and move them with her as she sings her original songs and tells her stories of the lifestyle and beauty of the American west.  Nancy is truly an inspired and talented artist."  Middleton House Concerts

          Best known for an alluring vocal style and enrapturing music and lyrics, Nancy writes " songs inspired by real life and soaked through with color and passion then delivers them completely, no holds barred. 

  Magical, mysterious.....A master of the story telling song....

  This poet, singer, musician and author may be petite and soft spoken, but she hits the stage in a big way!

This is the music of a life rich in spirit, infused with soul.....

Whether presenting a full concert or the women focused "Heart of it All" program, this lady is weaving a legendary trail of music into the tapestry of her self coined genre "Southwestern Americana!"


.....This girl has a voice that is the very personification of Americana, to rival Lucinda Williams and Eliza Gilkyson, with shades of Edith Piaf and Buffy St. Marie. Her music speaks the truth and the beauty of the American West, and of life in general, in every song she performs and every line that she writes; her audiences tune into that authenticity and find themselves wonderfully entertained. It is always apparent that her tunes come from love and from experience. Nancy is the ‘real deal’, regardless of any genre she cares to express in. Nancy’s recent appearance at the Western Music Association’s annual Awards Show was an exquisite highlight of the evening and I am honored indeed to have the opportunity to tell anyone who will listen what a bright and shining star she is!
