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!

Confession...

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... »

The Hardest Part

Good Morning from a VERY HOT AND MUGGY Upstate, N.Y., Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here. I've been thinking that the VERY HARDEST PART of doing this CD is the waiting!!! I LOVE going into the studio and making music -playing, singing etc! I LOVE producing (who knew?)! I LOVE editing -and the whole mental process! I'm psyched EVERY TIME I go into the studio to make music happen -in any capacity!!!!! There is one part of this process however that I loath - and that's the WAITING!!!

Three Plus Week Hiatus

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here on this wickedly hot and humuggity August morning. My life has been a WHIRLWIND these last 3 weeks (some good stuff and not some not so good stuff, i.e. stitches - argh) and consequently I've had to take almost a 4 week hiatus from the studio - ack!!! Can't wait to get back to it and keep my Wild Women Don't Get the Blues project moving forward!!! Be well, Best, Nancy Read more about Three Plus Week Hiatus »

Backup Vocals

Good Morning, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here with you on this cool summer's morning. So, in my last post I told you that I can see a glimmer of light for the end of my Wild Women Don't Get the Blues project. Fact is, we've started recording background vocals; Joel Blumert's vocals are done and we've made some headway with both Diane Davis and my vocals; next week we'll be going back into record more and hopefully finish 'em off! Woohoo!

I see a glimmer!

'Slowly she turned, step by step…' the key words here are "Slowly" and "Step by step", Hi Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here.The point is of course, that at times while things seemed to have gone SO slowly on my Wild Women Don't Get the Blues project, little by little, step by step we've made progress and now, finally, I'm starting to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel - woohoo! Be well, Nancy Read more about I see a glimmer! »

The Irony...

"What irony?" you may well ask. Or perhaps, "Which irony?" and I wouldn't blame you one bit! Hi there, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here! In this case, the irony I'm speaking of is the fact that both my opening and closing songs are nearing completion. It wasn't planned that way, it just kinda happened like that - guess that's part of the irony! And make no mistake, there are still things to do, but those two songs anyway are SO MUCH closer, YEA! Hope you're having a great day! Best, Nancy Read more about The Irony... »

Struggles...

Struggling comes in a lot of ways; For some it's a struggle to survive - literally. For some it's a struggle to pay their bills or to understand math concepts or why the rules are the way they are. For me this Wild Women Don't Get the Blues project has been a struggle right from the start. Hi, Nancy Carey Johnson, Singer/Songwriter here and please know that I am NOT complaining, rather musing and sharing. When I first started this project I had a "producer", unfortunately we parted ways before I even laid a single track down. Read more about Struggles... »

Starting to get there...

At this point, Heaven and Hell, From the Rodeo to Rodeo Drive, Lonely Angels Weep and Run Outta Road need to have harmony vocals added, a good mix down and mastering done and those 4 songs are finished!!! Can't WAIT!!! Hope you're well - Nancy Read more about Starting to get there... »
