Nancy Rost / Bio

Nancy Rost has been called "the love child of Tom Lehrer and Tom Waits" (KnowYourMusic.com). Her distinctive songs combine a jazz-influenced piano style with lyrics that are quirky, witty and heartfelt, often all at once.

This former toy-piano-playing street musician has garnered songwriting awards in multiple genres, including pop/rock, folk, jazz and comedy. Nancy is known internationally for her participation in songwriting marathons and her versatility as a collaborator.

Nancy is also known for her adventurous performances: "The laughter in the crowd is contagious, as everyone's thoughts are mixed in a tart, though refreshing, concoction of high witticisms and ardent applause." - The Capital Times

Nancy is also one-third of Two Johns & A Nancy, singer-songwriter supergroup of acoustic awesomeness. She also plays bass guitar with the Madison Area Ukulele Initiative.
