Be aware, the haunting music from Nancy Elizabeth will reach our ears in only few weeks. Nancy Elizabeth is a 23-year-old Wigan-born singer who has been writing and performing since she was 14. Her debut EP, The Wheel Turning King, who was released in 2006 by Manchester’s Timbreland Recordings, under her full name, Nancy Elizabeth Cunliffe, only received local and confidential acclaims. Since, she toured and her many gigs included supports for A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Tunng, Marissa Nadler and James Yorkston among others – Nancy Elizabeth is currently putting together a small touring group to augment her one-girl-band shows which feature primarily Celtic harp and acoustic guitar. Battle And Victory, her first full lp, is due September 24.
Preceding the album release two limited edition 7” singles are available, Hey Son and I Used To Try, both with exclusive B-sides.
