Biography

Avant-garde folk/Americana artist Nancy K. Dillon grew up in a musical family on the dusty plains of Oklahoma just 6 blocks from Route 66 and that ribbon of highway and possibility shaped her vision and musical sensibility. Nancy’s 2004 debut CD “Just Let Me Dream” was well-received and widely acclaimed by radio and press alike. Respected UK music journalist, Alan Cackett (Maverick-UK) hailed Dillon as an “original new talent” mining a musical vein akin to Lucinda Williams or Kasey Chambers and Americana UK put it this way, “. …accomplished, mature & soulful…NKD is a real standout amongst the ranks of roots based acoustic artists”. Dillon is a soulful singer and an award-winning songwriter. She masterfully weaves the textures and rhythms of American folk and country music into mythic road stories of small town claustrophobia, surreal euphoria and latter-day vagabonds traveling America’s byways threading through the sprawling American West.

In March 2010 Rose Rock Records announced the release of Dillon’s long anticipated follow-up to Just Let Me Dream. Roses Guide To Time Travel showcases Nancy’s okie-roots authenticity and soulfully intelligent take on Americana music with 11 original songs in her subtle and concise lyrical style. “The fancy term for Dillon’s kind of writing is mythopoeia,” says one reviewer. Songs about trains, depot stations and a slightly crumbling industrial landscape share the spotlight with songs of gently aging rockstars and fading beauty.
