With an acoustic guitar, strong vocals, songs you can relate to, and a smidge of attitude, Nancy Moran is a working indie recording artist who performs at notable folk clubs (The Bluebird Cafe, The Birchmere, Club Passim), house concerts (Rouse House, Panzer House Concerts, Acoustic Concert Tours) and festivals (Kerrville Folk Festival) across the U.S.
Declared "Songwriter of the Year" by the Virginia Sound Achievement awards and WXGI Radio, she has released four solo albums, including her latest titled Something Old, Something New, which is her most acoustic record to date. Her CDs have garnered her public and commercial radio airplay on stations coast-to-coast and have landed her on the Gavin Americana charts alongside Delbert McClinton and Joan Baez. Additionally, she has been featured internationally on radio stations in Australia, Canada, and Europe.
The Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch called Moran "nothing short of a [modern-day] Joni Mitchell" as well as "a major creative force to be reckoned with" while Dirty Linen Magazine says Nancy has "a powerful, expressive voice...stunning."
Her fans describe her music as "contemporary folk with a rock 'n' roll edge," "a cross between Nanci Griffith and Melissa Etheridge," and "Bonnie Raitt meets Carly Simon meets Billy Joel."
Typically performing with her producer and long-time musical partner, Fett, Moran comes to life on stage. Tightly knit harmonies, blended acoustic guitars, and rhythmic arrangements create a synergy that only comes from years of playing together. Audiences are lifted up and excited after a show.

"I heard Nancy live in Nashville. She is awesome-her voice is so powerful and her personality seems to come alive in her lyrics-now my favorite female vocalist. Nancy is the real deal-total package." – Bill
