CD Review: Nancy Parent's Voice Draws A "Vision Of Angels"

From New London, CT comes singer/songwriter Nancy Parent with a new solo album entitled “Vision of Angels.” It will be released on October 26 through Good Sponge Records and was produced by Hugh Birdsall (The Reducers) along with Nancy. As a member of the Americana band, The Rivergods, Nancy contributed to the development of songs, whether providing vocals or guitars. Now Nancy heads straight for the gentle folk sounds of her latest release.

Right from the opening songs “Sin Sick Soul” and “Ten Thousand Things,” you instantly notice how pretty her voice is along a stark musical background. At times her voice reflects the great Joan Baez as in “Winter Blues” and “All In My Head.” Nancy plugs in for “Memo,” but it’s the acoustic songs “The Well” and “Window” that capture the most meaning from her vocals.

Nancy Parent has a CD release show scheduled for October 26 at the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation in New London, CT. For more information, please visit
