Nancy Rost 23


Wisconsin US   Jan 2006  

Artist Bio

Back for my 15th FAWM! Pianist, singer-songwriter, collaborator, experimenter. She/her.

Official blurb for new release on Bandcamp - this collaboration grew out of FAWM:

Twelve years and 852 miles in the making, singer-songwriters Nancy Rost and Eric Agner have 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.

    Thanks so much for your comment on โ€œThey donโ€™t see meโ€ - Iโ€™m so glad it had that effect! (Also, sorry for any confusion on the fake accounts forum! *You* know I was just tagging it for your attention, right?!? ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚)

  • @tcelliott  Mar 6

    A midwest Fawmstock sounds like a great idea. I contemplated mid Missouri at one time, but being so far away from an airport seems to be a deterrent to some. I think it's worth exploring, though.

  • @cts  Mar 3

    And it's done!

  • @zecoop  Mar 2

    No worries... I just wanted to get a first message out before I forgot and everyone was gone. Of course I know where you are and could still get in touch. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @zecoop  Mar 1

    Thank you so much for being a part of my dad's FAWM (@srcoops)... Let me know if it would be ok to have your song on his Bandcamp compilation album. If it is ok and you are able, please feel free to send me the WAV version to zecoop at yahoo dot com. Also let me know what info you would like to be included on Bandcamp. Thank you once again!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cts  Mar 1

    Alrighty then - I'm gettin' ta work. And yes, we are gonna catch up cuz there's quite a bit to share. We've got ideas that need 'a fleshing out! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @cts  Mar 1

    ..and once again I am amazed at your output. Wow. So check it out, my dear; Tape 2 actually has a drum track, Coop's guitar and your vocals. Should I just add channel 4 and then mix it all down?

  • @sw1n3flu  Mar 1

    Hey Nancy, thanks for the kind words!

  • @davidbreslin101  Feb 29

    Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells? It's just a Britishism for the kind of person who fills up our newspaper letters columns!

  • @elesimo  Feb 29

    Nancy, thank you so much for your comments on my song "Moon Tune"! I'm happy you enjoyed the song and had fun with me. ๐Ÿ˜€

    The vocals in that song are definitely out of my comfort zone, and I was really happy with how they turned out (my neighbors not as much).

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 24

    Heh, no worries. It's hardly the most approachable lyric, even by my standards. I appreciate that you tried.

  • @karenwheelock Feb 24

    Thanks for the comment on my song โ€œI Wanna Go Where Itโ€™s Warmโ€, Nancy!
    I started FAWM off strong, but life has really gotten in my way this month. Hoping to pick back up this week a little and get another song out there!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 23


  • @matthew62  Feb 23

    Thanks for your comments on " I ain't losin no time". Much appreciated.

  • @leka Feb 22

    Thanks for listening

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 22

    Thanks for the listen on Sundazzle!

  • @markg  Feb 21

    Hi and thanks for the listen on Privacy Mode. It was fun to met and hear you last summer and I will get your CD with Standup, bet that was a blast to make.

  • @roxya  Feb 18

    Thanks. Got the link fixed now.

  • @timfatchen  Feb 18

    Naughty Nancy! okay, I'll put the Rattle of the Rails bandcamp link into the video liner notes (people are still looking at it occasionally... and the railway is now as dead as the dodo. In fact I think that film clip is the last film of a full train on the line.)

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 15

    I've now made the song Follow downloadable -

  • @pfoo  Feb 14


  • @kahlo2013  Feb 13

    Thanks so much Nancy for your awesome music on mirror mirror! I love the direction you took it!

  • @yaquimike Feb 13

    Happy FAWM 2020!

  • @johncrossman  Feb 12

    Right on. I've been listening to the Dukes of Stratosphere and pondering interesting titles/musical approaches...

  • @johncrossman  Feb 12

    Just stopping by to say... Hi Nancy! If my phone had a 7-pound death bird emoji, it would be inserted here.

  • @cts  Feb 11

    **sigh** that's why you. R. The. Bomb. Diggity. Oslaw!

  • @cts  Feb 11

    Hey Nancy - I'm quite behind on a few things, BUT when you get a moment, see if you can look up (You Tube maybe) Fruit at the Bottom by Wendy & Lisa. Not so much for the chorus but for the verses. That's the inspiration for the various reasons for screaming.

  • @brandondale72  Feb 11

    Nancy, thanks for the kind words on my song, โ€œContemplationโ€. Appreciate the support.

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 11

    Songs! I was beginning to worry about the lack of Nancy in my feed, but it turns out my dumb phone fingers must have unwatched you at some point.

  • @karenwheelock Feb 9

    Good to see you too! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @barbara  Feb 9

    Hi Nancy, thanks for the heads up about the release at bandcamp. I listened to the whole set and gladly got myself a โ€˜copyโ€™. Great work!!
    (photobybr at aol)

  • @srcoops  Feb 5

    When you are ready, I'll put one up

  • @srcoops  Feb 5

    OK We'll work something else up. I really like the way you perform music.

  • @srcoops  Feb 4

    I changed a word (beauty to hero) so it would better fit female vocalization on My Dear

  • @srcoops  Feb 4

    See My Dear. Maybe you can make something of it.

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 4

    Absolutely! I have a week of 14 hr days until Friday. But on Friday night I will be diving back into FAWM as recovery.

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 4

    Iโ€™m so excited to be paired with you for a collab! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @srcoops  Feb 4

    I think I would like to write one that would be a bit closer to your terrific style. Thanks for asking. We have a long way to go.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 3

    Have at it! I'm sure you could do it justice. One of the greatest joys I find in FAWM is writing something seemingly unworkable and having an artist quickly prove me wrong.

    I think I say 'man' twice, but I'm sure you can rejig that easily enough.

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 3

    Harness the grouch! It's good song juice.

  • @pvk2020  Feb 2

    I am about to post my first FAWM song. Is there a word for that?

  • @bunter  Feb 2

    Hello Nancy. Thank you for the comments. Good luck with the challenge.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 2

    Hi hi Nancy Nancy-it was so very good to see you again at the Delaware FAWMstock. I'll be following what you do and hoping as always for one of those Phil Norman/Nancy Rost songs that are always so amazing. Come over and say hi when you can.

  • @kadmad202  Feb 1

    Hi Nancy! Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year! Have fun!

  • @autoclamp  Jan 31

    Hellooo Nancy! Hellooo cats!

  • @ericdistad  Jan 31

    Yay! Great to see you back Nancy! I'm looking forward to new songs from you! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @kristian  Jan 31

    Hi Nancy! Have a great FAWM!

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 31

    Now that is a cool (or fire-fally) little tale.

  • @philnorman  Jan 30

    Hello, kind friend!

  • @julieann Jan 30

    Same here Nancy! I'm getting excited, definitely in the right mental space for this finally๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽถ

  • @jamkar  Jan 28

    Hey, so many hiโ€™s and hellos! Thought I would add mine. Happy FAWM Nancy!

  • @zecoop  Jan 28

    Awesome - I think I still have the link from last year, so whether it is the same one or if it's different we are covered! Thanks once again for everything. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @srcoops  Jan 28

    I think the kind of fun you produce with your fine musicianship is just what the doctor ordered. I will definitely be talking to you about some projects we might do together

  • @aaronnathans Jan 28

    Yes, let's write a song together!

  • @izaakalexander  Jan 28

    Thanks Nancy! 14 Songs in 28 --- 29 Days!

  • @pcob1993  Jan 28

    Hi Nancy, thank you, so lovely to hear from you. Can't wait to hear more of your work.

  • @downburst  Jan 28

    Thank you, Nancy. And likewise.

  • @writeandwrong  Jan 27

    Hi, nice meeting you at FAWMStock! Hope you have an amazing FAWM 2020! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Jan 27

    Thanks for the nice welcome! 15 years of FAWM! I can only dream of that. First time for everything. Have a great FAWM!

  • @barbara  Jan 26

    Aha! Iโ€™d love to pick up a copy of that when it comes out; I enjoyed your collaborations a lot! How soon?

  • @barbara  Jan 26

    Wishing you a wonderful FAWM full of lovely surprises. I canโ€™t wait to hear them!

  • @fuzzy  Jan 26

    Gosh, now I have the WTF song stuck in my head! I'm glad (or sorry?) it was so memorable for you. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Jan 26

    Happy Fawming, Nancy!

  • @stevenwesleyguiles  Jan 25

    Hey Nancy!!! Canโ€™t wait to see what this year brings!

  • @caterwauler  Jan 24

    Looking forward to hearing what you make as well! Happy FAWMing!

  • @jendistad  Jan 24

    Thank you, Nancy! I'm so glad we got to hang out and gig together, too. Looking forward to new music from you this next month! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @johnnycashpoint Jan 24

    Ohh I am seriously OLD ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks, Nancy - looking forward to what you come up with, as usual .... xxJ$

  • @resonance Jan 24

    Thanks, Nancy - it's good to be back! Can't wait to listen to what you come up with this year.

  • @corinnecurcio  Jan 23

    Hi Nancy - Have fun this FAWM - I hope I won't only write about becoming a cranky old retiree!

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 23

    Me too, I'm so excited!

  • @cts  Jan 23

    Well, rather frankly I don't know. I keep hearing variations of screaming based on a feeling...excitement, anger, fear, frustration. I guess it's a song about how screams come out based upon how one feels. However, I didn't want to start writing before Feb. Just ideas but I wanted to make sure I let you know before FAWMily starts knocking on your door! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @cts  Jan 23

    Hi. I jotted down this idea: Screaming. Kinda like Yoko Ono...but not so sonically annoying. It'll be a hoot.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 22

    Hi Nancy, good to be back though I wonโ€™t have much time this year. Have a great FAWM!

  • @klaus  Jan 22

    Hi Nancy. Thanks for the nice welcome. Wow, this is your 15th Fawm. You're a teenager in Fawm-years, young and vibrant, on the cusp of something new and exciting. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @petemurphy Jan 22

    Hi Nancy, thanks!
    Y'know, I haven't thought that far ahead yet. In the previous 'FAWM Specials' I've done, I've asked people to send me a couple of their favourite compositions for me to choose from, but during the challenge... I'm not sure... maybe a bit of me looking around and finding songs I like, and maybe a bit of asking people which song they'd prefer me to play.

    And, for next week's pre-FAWM show, would you like me to play something of yours? If so, you can email me a couple of your favourites. I'll also mention your web/social links too.

  • @elesimo  Jan 22

    Happy FAWM, @nancyrost! Looking forward to your songs and to having you joining us for a fawmover one of these days! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @jonmeta  Jan 22

    Good to see you here as always!

  • @zecoop  Jan 21

    I use about 1% of Reaperโ€™s capability but will likely be able to help you with what you need! Iโ€™ve loved it

  • @theresaj  Jan 21

    Glad to be here again and I canโ€™t wait for some jazzy tunes from you!

  • @helenseviltwin  Jan 20

    I'm certain we can find time for a collaboration. Let's start early on before other things get in the way.

  • @natrin Jan 20

    Hello, have a great FAWM! ๐Ÿ˜

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 20

    Fifteen? Good lord. You'd think we'd have learnt better by now.

    Great to see you back, Nancy.

  • @carlos Jan 19

    Hu Nancy! Thx for checking the file out.. appreciate the feedback you can give.. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Jan 19

    Here we go a fawmaling a fawmaling along. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 19

    Hello!! I am still reeling from meeting you in person and being able to hear your talent live....I am anxious for more!!

  • @standup  Jan 19

    Hey there, and happy FAWM. Let's continue doing STUFF in the analog and digital realms.

  • @kahlo2013  Jan 18

    FAWM away with wild abandon, my friend! I always look forward to your music and any collaborations/co-creations!

  • @pfoo  Jan 18

    Looking forward to some 4-track fun!

  • @unpronounceable Jan 17

    The bagel of life gave me parasites! (And they each have their own fawm profile!)

  • @zecoop  Jan 17

    Here we go - Looking forward to FAWMing...

  • @srcoops  Jan 17

    I have some ideas, many are somber, but I am working to get beyond it as best I can. Looking forward to working with you again.

  • @johncrossman  Jan 16

    When my tablet auto corrected to "Nancy Frost" I thought sure, she probably writes some ok songs. But nothing like the genuine article - have a great month!

  • @tsunamidaily  Jan 14

    have the best FAWM this year!

  • @srcoops  Jan 13

    I enter this season of FAWM with a very heavy heart. Our oldest son passed away last week while visiting us.

  • @metalfoot  Jan 13

    Just wanted to know because last year I did a "Fake It" challenge which was at once different from yet similar to the Explore the Core and didn't want to step on your toes. I'll hold back from Fake It if you're doing Explore. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @metalfoot  Jan 13

    Hey, do you usually do the Explore the Core? Wondering if that's this year again?

  • @tcelliott  Jan 13

    Heya, Rot Band Sis. *hugs*

  • @max  Jan 12

  • @cts  Jan 11

    Yes, yes, and OH YES!!!

  • @atam94 Jan 5

    Hey, thanks for the welcome post on my soundboard! Iโ€™m excited to be here!
