Nancy Elliott is best known for her unique, alluring vocal style, and enrapturing music and lyrics. Writing songs inspired by "life, experienced first hand and soaked through with adventure, color and passion....", she then delivers them completely, no holds barred. ....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 life, full of spirit and soul, delivered straight from the heart!.... Whether she is presenting a full concert of songs, stories and tales, or presenting her women focused Heart of the West program, this lady is weaving a legendary trail of music into the tapestry of the Southwest!
Katy Creek is a creation of the fertile mind of Nancy Elliott. She is the authentic heart and soul of that entity that is Katy Creek. 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!
