A singer/songwriter with a rich and powerful voice, her songs are like a fresh breath in a genre that has often been overworked. Passionate and intelligent without being whiney or sad, Nancy Falkow can serve up a soulful rock song or a slow ballad with equal fervor. Her recent accomplishments have included winning the Lilith Fair talent search in 1998 and performing onstage with the Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan and other women of the festival.
I listened to her self-titled 5-song cd EP, which was recorded in 1997 at Tongue and Groove Studios. My favorite song was Invisible, but all have a lively flavor. The band who played with her on the album included co-writer (and front man of Wanderlust) Scot Sax (producer) on guitar, co-writer Mark Getten on bass, Shane McMartin on drums and Jennifer Lynn helping with harmony vocals.
Nancy Falkow's current live-band line-up includes JoAnn Schmidt (formerly of 7 Potato Baby and Cory) on bass, Steve Margulis (formerly of Cory) on guitar, and Shane McMartin on drums. She also is the manager of Indre recording studios (we all need a day job, right?) The current band is working on an upcoming full-length cd release at Indre.
Interesting facts: Originally from the Atlantic City (NJ) area, Nancy Falkow is also writing a children's record with Deirdre Flint.
