Album Review: Nancy Elizabeth:: Battle and Victory::: The Leaf Label
    • THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2007

    If the music of twenty three year old Nancy Elizabeth whips up ice-cold images of isolation in wide open, wind swept terrain, it is certainly for good reason. The Lancashire-born singer captured her ambitious take on folk music’s age-old traditions while surrounded by a sea of countryside. Recorded in both a remote 17th Century white stone cottage in Wales and a village hall outside Manchester, it’s just the kind of intimate setting one would expect to stumble upon a band of clandestine musicians working away on dulcimer, glockenspiel, guitar, harp, mandolin and a variety of other instruments that read like another language all together (bouzouki, khim, etc). The result is Elizabeth’s debut long player, Battle and Victory (The Leaf Label); a unique batch of mystic song fare that calls to mind the very best aspects of Nina Nastasia, Joanna Newsome, and Vashti Bunyon.
