Nancy Moran is a folk-rooted singer-songwriter who uses her unique mix of attitudinal folk, soulful Americana, and feel-good rock to convey the hard-earned lessons of everyday life. For more than two decades, she’s been sharing those lessons and her music with audiences at notable folk clubs, house concerts and festivals all over the country.
As an independent Nashville-based artist, Moran has released four solo CDs with her producer and long-time musical collaborator, Fett. (Yes, they're also married.) Her CDs garnered her public and commercial radio airplay on stations coast-to-coast and have landed her on the Americana charts alongside Delbert McClinton and Joan Baez.
For eight years, she also toured and recorded as a member of the nationally acclaimed, all-female, musical troupe, The Four Bitchin’ Babes, selling out performing arts centers across the U.S. and Canada.
The Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch called Moran "nothing short of a [modern-day] Joni Mitchell" as well as "a major creative force to be reckoned with."
Dirty Linen Magazine says Nancy has "a powerful, expressive voice...stunning." Her strong, alto vocals are sometimes smooth and gentle, other times gutsy, gravelly and high-energy.
As a husband and wife duo, Nancy Moran & Fett’s intimate yet energetic performances create a synergy that only comes from years of playing together. Their signature sound of blended acoustic guitars, tightly woven two-part harmonies and rhythmic arrangements has been compared to The Indigo Girls and The Civil Wars. Moran’s original songs and performances touch every emotion, taking listeners on a deeply moving journey of love, lost romance, friendship, playfulness, honesty and faith. By concert's end, the listener will have laughed, cried, danced and imagined -- leaving with an invigorated sense of hope for a better day.
When she’s not playing live, she can often be found behind a microphone in the studio singing on other artists’ records and songwriter demos. Moran is also frequently a key-note speaker and workshop leader at major music conferences and events. And she provides professional guidance and one-to-one coaching to other singer/songwriters, producers, and creatives through her business Azalea Music Group.
Moran's versatility, spontaneity and range are "helping bring people together in a broken world."
