Layers of Rust and Time
“Nancy Walker's "Layers of Rust and Time" is a lovingly produced recording, highly polished and beautifully packaged without losing a sense of play.  Nancy's originals are thoughtful and innovative, revealing jazz, country, folk and pop influences, but the pull is toward folk - "Quecreek was Water" covers the chilling territory of a mine disaster; "One Man's History," inspired by David Lynch's "Straight Story" deals with living with memories of combat. Walker's "Here's Looking at Love" and Bruce Roper's "Good for Her" up the mood, and Walker sings the three traditional songs here as if she wrote them.”  AC, Waterbug Records

“Walker’s silky warm voice fits into each song like a glove.  “Here’s Lookin At Love” would make her a star in Austin, and “Dreamwalker” could be a song Joni Mitchell edited off one of her CD’s by mistake.” Stacey Board—The Muse’s Muse.

"Nancy nails it every time! Not just your regular contemporary singer/songwriter, Nancy covers several genres with this stellar release.  She bridges contemporary folk, traditional folk and a bit of country with ease, style, and grace and does it in her own very classy way with some very fine backup players and topnotch production.  Nancy’s voice is like none other."  Chris McGill, WSPN Radio

True Colors
"Nancy Walker is someone whose name I had heard around the scene over the years, but I was not aware of her music. This is the wonder of what WEXT does. I now know her songs, or at least a couple, from hearing her interviews on the station. It made me wonder how many people didn’t know about her. This is weird when you consider that she’s been in the Top 10 on the British Folk Charts. Yup. The soft acoustic folk songs were not only ably supported by the two sidemen, but Nancy’s voice has the kind of longing and subtle power that draws you into the world of the songs. She has a new CD out called “True Colors” which you should pick up. Now. Go. This will still be here later.”   Mike Grutka, Talk About The Passion

"True Colors" is a collection of songs that is inspired by the local history and characters of Greenfield Center in upstate NY.  Songwriters and artists might take note:  Nancy funded this project in part by writing an arts grant. While the songs retain a local flavor and narrative, there is a universal quality to the stories that makes it accessible and attractive far beyond a regional audience.  My favorite tune on this recording is a song called "Time Travelers" that takes the listener on a trip through the past by opening a simple box of old pictures. It's a thoughtful, moody song and it's something to which I think we can all relate.  It's my favorite kind of songwriting, it brings to mind other writers I admire like Cheryl Wheeler and Jackson Browne."  Chuck Cheeseman, Musician

All These Things
"All These Things” is the solo debut from Nancy Walker, formerly of the great Chicago folk band Sons Of The Never Wrong.  Nancy’s signature vocal riffs carry over to her own work.  Buffy Sainte-Marie once said that she sings from her toes.  Nancy Walker sounds like that.  Her original songs present a fresh, spacious lyrical and melodic landscape.  “Do You Know The Way,” “Pawnshops and Cafes,” “Viewpoint” and two tracks (0f 9) from previous Sons CD’S.  AC, Waterbug Records
