Artist Bio

Happy to be back in 2019 for my 14th consecutive FAWM. I play piano (teach it as day job), bass, and whatever I can find. I'm fond of jazz, collaboration, exploring new techniques and genres. I'm shorter on time this year and trying to catch up.

    Me, too! I’m excited and nervous all at once -I’m gonna be FAWMstar struck! πŸ˜ƒ

  • @cts  Mar 18

    Thanks for listening. I used a phone FX VST plugin (Chris Lord-Alge series). CLA has been my Go-to plug in for my bass, too. I totally love it. Check it out at

  • @billysea  Mar 9

    Looks like I can't make it for the FOP afterall, but hope to make it up that way at some point in the next year so will look y'all up πŸ˜€

  • @kadmad202 Mar 8

    Hi Nancy! Hope to meet you tonight at your gig with the two John's! Deb

  • @natalieedelson  Mar 5

    thanks for your kind words on my tune. Looking forward to lots of listening now that FAWMcrunch is over πŸ˜€

  • @barbara  Mar 5

    Spring cleaning, eh? If only it would work on me that way! (Appropriately named, too.). Thanks for listening.

  • @jwhanberry  Mar 5

  • @eargoggle  Mar 5

    Hey thanks for checking out my afrobat song (that I forgot to make public when I posted)! Yeah i find it hard to write in the style because once I get it happening all I want to hear is a deep Nigerian voice a la Fela....maybe that's why I was so blocked for the verses. But you're right, a lot of those songs only have a line or two of lyrics and that's enough (I love Tony allen!)

  • @billysea  Mar 4

    Thanks Nancy, Not for sure I can make it but fingers crossed πŸ˜€

  • @srcoops Mar 4

    Thanks for your kind comments in regard to Where's My Stuff, I think this was my favorite limerick that I wrote this year. I will be looking for you next year if I get to stick around that long.

  • @jwhanberry  Mar 3

  • @the3queens  Mar 3

    I don't know what happened but I have seen it. Is it by Google? Venmo? or PayPal?

  • @tcelliott  Mar 2

    I think late summer/early autumn is free for us. We'd absolutely love another Madison area fawmstock (or anywhere within 7 hours or so of here is more than doable.)

  • @hoppiern  Mar 2

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song! 😊

  • @phoenixash Mar 1

    Thank you so much for your comment on my song. I also love the mix between happy and sad, it's bittersweet which actually adds depth!

  • @markg  Mar 1

    Thanks for the note on my country music voice. I found the key for me is to remember to drop the Boston accent and get into the β€œr” sounds.

  • @markg  Mar 1

    Hi Nancy. Are you going to FAWMstock in Delaware this summer? I’d like to see you there

  • @roddy  Mar 1

    Hi there, re your Come Dance collaboration, thanks for getting in touch. As I said, I think you did a really good job. My suggestion was just that - a suggestion and not at all a criticism. I honestly couldn't have produced anything anywhere near as good as you did. See you for 50/90 later this year I hope πŸ˜€

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 1

    that hoops collab inspired me too... just posted. wow, what a fawm indeed! nice to see you got past 14, i have some listening to do!

  • @theresaj  Mar 1

    I’ll get back to you with some dates over the weekend. Heath is gone so I need to chat with him and see what works when he comes back. I’m looking forward to it!

  • @srcoops Feb 28

    I was fortunate to have many persons collaborate with me this year but I think the thing we did together is my favorite for the year. Thanks!
    Hope I can come back next year (my 83rd)

  • @dasbinky  Feb 27

    A picture of a keytar?

  • @the3queens  Feb 27

    @nancyrost you can "send money to family and friends" through PayPal to If you just "send money" they deduct $7.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 26

    Hi, Nancy. Yes, I think you'd be well suited to this one. I'm happy to leave it open for you, even if it'll be a retroactive effort.

    Thank you very much for thinking of me.

  • @gdalessio Feb 25

    Hi Nancy! Thanks for your post on You Are --I sure appreciate it - happy Fawm!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 24

    Nancy!! Thank you, I love it!!!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 24

    Sent you a message via email

  • @wobbiewobbit  Feb 24

    thanks for the heads up on 4 track, well done you did a great job with it! πŸ˜€

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 23

    Nancy! Our last collab feels like ages ago. Foolishly late to ask, but if you've got some of your lovely words spare, I think there's a spare seat in this cinema. (Or we could swap roles? I do like your words though.)

  • @netnoise Feb 20

    Hi Nancy. Thank you for your thoughtful compliments and suggestions for my song. I'll definitely think about that when I work on rewrites.

    I'd love to help you out with a sax solo. Is it for a song you've already posted or something new? Do you have ideas for what you'd like to hear?

  • @reklov Feb 18

    It's my good old melodica. πŸ˜€

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 18

  • @erelpi10 Feb 18

    Thank you for the feedback. It’s helpful. I like your idea. I might explore that

  • @pfoo  Feb 18

    Listening to ice sounds cool πŸ˜€

  • @scottlake  Feb 17

    You have a good ear. I almost completely stole the chord progression from Stray Cat Strut. I transposed it, and swapped an augmented chord in for a non-augmented one - can't remember which one. Stray Cat Strut is such a great song, it's hard not to steal the whole thing!

  • @scottlake  Feb 17

    Nancy you left a kind note about my Lucy with the sideways eye lyrics only song. I did the music for it last night after I finished the bass line for your song.

  • @scottlake  Feb 16

    I plan to add the bass tonight. I haven't worked out which key the ' I ' is, before I work out the line. Do you remember what it is?

  • @cynthiawolff  Feb 15

    Hi Nancy,
    Tape just landed...will have a listen today,Friday,
    And hopefully finish it and get it in the mail tomorrow..

  • @dasbinky  Feb 15

    Thanks for the Hide Your Ghoat comment! I was worried about the werewolf thing in the bridge: I was going for moth, which is a bit more of a trans metaphor... but the ghost theme leads you down the more supernatural path.

    If we play this live, it'll be easy. It's basically White Castle Prince Charming up a half-step. πŸ˜‰

  • @theresaj  Feb 14

    Hi Nancy! Matt wrote a set of lyrics for FAWM and I added music. Thought you’d like to check the song out.

  • @akokulit Feb 14

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my song and appreciating it. Will add your songs to my playlist when I marathon through them in the next few days. πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Feb 13

    Awesome - I was going to check that next. I updated the forum one (got rid of characters so I could). I added Tape 19 to the Google doc. πŸ˜€

  • @scottlake  Feb 13

    I will give it a go this weekend. How do you prefer to receive the track?

  • @elesimo  Feb 13

    @nancyrost I got your address! Will send you the tape tomorrow! πŸ˜€

  • @wacha  Feb 12

    Thank you for the feedback on "The Soil of Your Heart"!

  • @cts  Feb 2019

    Thanks, Nancy. We're working through it. I was encouraged to press on with recording songs. I really appreciate you!

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your complimentary comment on "Betrayal".

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 2019

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Tempting Time", I really appreciate it!! Thanks for responding as well!!

  • @roddy  Feb 2019

    Hi Nancy, thanks for your comment on my piano latin piece. The rhythm was from Garageband and is called Latin Fire.

  • @mattblick  Feb 2019

    Hey Nancy good to be back!

  • @bachelorb  Feb 2019

    Hey Nancy..... Your tape should be getting the tape in tomorrow. I didn't include the the lyric sheet and chords, but I can email it to you.... I don't sing well enough, so I put a guitar track on the tape, then erased it, so I have the sheet I wrote out

  • @srcoops Feb 2019

    Even though there is a long way to go, our collaboration stands as a highlight for me. Thank you!

  • @elesimo  Feb 2019

    Hi, Nancy! Yes, let me know when you're in the area, it would be fun to get together!

  • @elesimo  Feb 2019

    @nancyrost I fixed the song in, you should be able to hear it now. πŸ˜€

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 2019

    Thanks, Nancy!

  • @srcoops Feb 2019

    You made this something very nice. Thanks for your encouragement. The title you gave it really expresses what is there after 61 years. In reality, we were in the 8th grade together.

  • @mikegtz  Feb 2019

    Hi again to Nancy of the Frozen Midwest!

  • @jessi14  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your comment! Interesting how the message came across, without you knowing any German:-)

  • @bachelorb  Feb 2019

    Tape 12 will be coming your way Monday!!! I had a wacky idea..... sorry.......

  • @leah0k  Feb 2019

    Thank you for your input on my first song πŸ˜€ I also feel like it's a bit short, I'll have to think on that!

  • @bachelorb  Feb 2019

    Hey Nancy, I couldn't get to your email address for some reason.... I need to get your address, but I think you need to get mine too....

  • @elainedimasi  Jan 2019

    It's going to feel great to be back! Thank you!

  • @srcoops Jan 2019

    Hope we can work together on something this year. Now 82 but still vertical.

  • @jackdawfactories  Jan 2019

    I keep thinking I'll skip a year, and then I never want to when it comes around!
