Nancy Rost

Back for my 17th FAWM! Pianist, singer-songwriter, collaborator, experimenter. She/her.

More bio, 2022 thoughts coming soon.

Just before COVID hit, Nancy Rost and Eric Agner released their first record, Violet Cusp. Rost, a singer-pianist based in Madison, WI and Agner, a singer and bassist in Washington, D.C. have been co-writing long distance since 2008. Their songs, expansive and energetic, span the genre gamut.

I also work as a piano teacher, currently online only. (New student inquiries welcome. Specialties include working with adults and non-traditional learners, applied theory, and jazz harmony.)

Nancy...you may get a chuckle out of this !!!!
here is a traditional instrument used for Newfoundland music...but also can be used for the rock and roll...like the song "Wipeout". It is called an ugly stick see definition below.

The ugly stick is a traditional Newfoundland musical instrument fashioned out of household and tool shed items, typically
a mop handle with bottle caps, tin cans, small bells and other noise makers. The instrument is played with a drum stick or notched stick and has a distinctive sound.

Thanks for the comment on Second Chances, thanks for keeping plugging away! Thanks for the advice about the vocal in the chorus, if I get the chance I will play around with that. The chords were a bit random - I often end up writing a first song for FAWM or 50/90 that feels a bit off the wall. I'll give you a listen now as I'm not sure our paths have crossed before.

Ha! Indeed!

And if you haven’t done music yet… consider repeating sometimes in the pre-choruses - Oh sometimes oh sometimes…….sings in my head better that way, but whatever works for what you’re hearing/playing

Yay! Thank you!!!!
