Album Notes
Blending brave and honest songwriting, first-rate musicianship, and a huge helping of native Canadian wit, Nancy Beaudette is an artist of songs and heart. She was raised near Cornwall, Ontario, a place sustained by farming and millwork where French and English languages were friendly neighbours. Her new CD, “South Branch Road”, delves into those roots, weaving a nostalgic past into lush songs of familial history, good humoured folly and poignant observations of life and loss.

As a budding 11 year old musician, she cut her teeth chording along to her grandfather’s old-time fiddling and devoured other influences as fast as she could find them: show tunes and pop songs and everything in the Reader’s Digest Songbooks!

Singing and playing in a church choir also exerted a powerful influence over Beaudette’s early musical career. During the 80’s and 90’s, she directed a twenty-five voice choir, wrote her own liturgical music, and toured all over Canada and the northeast US. Her recordings garnered radio play and high praise from all quarters, including a CGMA Song of the Year Award in 1997 for “Create in Me”, and a CGMA nomination for Album of the Year for “Surrender”.

But even with great success and rich experiences like these, Nancy realized it was time to embrace a more personal brand of songwriting. In 2010, she released her sixth CD “Honestly”, which garnered numerous accolades from competitions, fans and the folk community at large. “Fa La La”, a collection of nine original Christmas songs, was released in 2012, and received critical acclaim from Folk Radio and accumulated several songwriting awards for “Silence Tonight” – a song dedicated to Mothers of soldiers.

Now three years in the making, “South Branch Road” is Nancy’s eighth CD. It brings to fruition many hours spent in Nashville co-writing and working with some of Music City’s finest, including hit writers like Kerry Chater & Lynn Gillespie and Grammy winner Jon Vesner. The CD was produced by Graham Greer, Glenn Forrester in Cornwall, Ontario, and was mixed by John Caldwell in Nashville.

For fans and listeners, it will come as no surprise to learn that this award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter also happens to be an award-winning sign-maker. The artistry that has brought success to her company, Sign-It Signs & Design, imbues every aspect of her singing, songwriting, and recording. Making signs and writing songs have much in common. Both begin with an inkling, both require a combination of love, faith, and craft, that lead us to see the world in new ways.

On-stage and off, Nancy practices hometown hospitality, taking special pleasure in “greeting you at the door.” Come to one of Beaudette’s shows and you will experience first-hand all the warmth and welcome of a Canadian kitchen party!
