Album Notes
Multi-Platinum Recording Artist Nancy Cassidy
Releases Her Latest: Runaway Train
Release Date January 2009

The first thing you have to talk about is the voice. How can you not? It’s a Nancy Cassidy album and you come for that heart-stopping tenor with a platinum power-to-grace ratio.

But you stay for the heart.

Cassidy never hides. She has a voice that’s carried and covered all the standards, but her own music is where it all comes home. Runaway Train is all original material, a showcase of songwriting where the Cassidy voice is a bonus; a huge, honey-powered bonus.

With Runaway Train, Cassidy hits the tracks rolling again. Last time out (So Much Weather, 2006) she mixed a little blues, a little folk “and a kicker of country”. This time she ups the ante, adding some foot-stomping gospel and swing to the mix. You end up wondering what she can’t do.

Looking for a swingy blues thing with a little naughty attached? Check out Whoopee.

How about a foot-stomping come-to-meeting gospel? That would be Hallelujah.

One More Wave has a monster hook that’ll take it straight to swing charts.

Cassidy’s back-up band knows exactly how to make it all come together whether they’re taking it easy (Surround Me) or raising the roof on the title track, Runaway Train. The veteran band features Ronnie Crawford on the drums, national touring John R. Burr on piano, the multi-everything Dayan Kai on keyboards, fiddle, clarinet and harmonies. Santa Cruz folk-rock hero Keith Greeninger
produced the album while doing it very right on lead guitar.

Runaway Train takes Nancy Cassidy to the next station on a career that’s sold more than 2 million albums. With a pure voice and a signature style she has set up her own house in the folk/rock world with a platinum sound that’s still picking up steam.
