Now Playing:

The Artistry of ... Nancy Wilson

Wednesday, 14 September 2016 00:00

The image is classic. With so much poise and sophistication it’s all about nuance and determined suggestion.

The music she makes is enchanting, passionate and lyrical and she involves you in every line because she is respectfully as involved. She plays out in front of the band and with the band at the same time. Her artistry is a crafty devotion to the styles she sings.

There’s an element of the wink in that delivery too. Listen for it; it’s the sweet treat in her voice.
