Life is Good - Introduction

Funny how things go in life. I grew up in Brooklyn and spent summers in the country at my grandparents’ house. And while there is much to recommend the city, I always knew that I didn’t belong there and that I would be much happier living in the country.

After college, I worked in a green market by Union Square in Manhattan.

Along the way, we raised four sons and were adopted by our dog, Jolly. Read more about Life is Good - Introduction »

One thing leads to another...

Hey There, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. Wanted to share a really nice happenstance. So I told you that I played the Hillsdale, NY ArtsWalk! last week and then just yesterday I received not 1 but 2 invitations to play; The first is the Hillsdale, NY Pumpkin Fest. I am SO excited because I LOVE events like that - such a piece of Americana history!!!! And then, I was invited to play the Copake/Hillsdale Farmers Market. Food, music, pumpkins…doesn't get better than that does it?

Hope you're well and have a WONDERFUL day,

Hillsdale Artswalk & "Groupies"!

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here on this bright, sunshiny, albeit chilly morning! DId I mention that I was asked to play the Hillsdale, NY ArtsWalk (which I did last Saturday, Sept. 12) by the lovely and talented Miss Christina Dellea? It was a really nice event with lots of cool and beautiful art in the lovely small town of Hillsdale. I was lucky enough to play early and it was an absolutely perfect early fall morning, kinda like this one now! Better yet? I had a couple of 'groupies' show up!

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here with you on this chilly summer morning! "Confession?" you're asking, well yes. Confession. See it has to do with the fact that I do NOT love summer heat/weather, rather I LOVE CHILLY and even COLD weather. A fact that horrifies my summer, hot weather loving friends. And this morning feels like a perfect October morning; Chilly, very chilly! Read more about Confession... »
