Nancy Beaudette fills the stage with fun, upbeat performances in true troubadour fashion. Her writing is reminiscent of singer songwriters of the sixties and seventies, and has the emotional edge of a woman with some heartfelt life experience. 'I want to write music without having to edit personal feelings. I love to write about things happening in the world and in my own life - I think people relate to that.' Signature melodies and expressive vocals have made music icons take notice. The ballad 'Yesterday' caught the attention of Grammy Award winner & Country Music Super Star Kathy Mattea who subsequently offered to demo the vocals on this recording. Nancy has also been co-writing with Nashville songwriters, most notably Grammy winner Jon Vezner. Their collaboration on 'It Took Losing You to Find Me', recorded in Nashville, features Jon on piano along with a very poignant string arrangement, and an intimate vocal performance by Nancy. Another song worth noting is 'When the Last Whistle Blows', a vibrant, celtic influenced song capturing both the heartache and possibilities surrounding the closure of the paper-mill in Nancy's hometown. Hailing from Ontario, Canada, this well established artist continues to engage and delight audiences throughout North America.
