Album Notes
If healing has a landscape, what do you see? Or a voice, what do you hope to hear? Vessel of Gold could be cheaper than therapy if comfort, reassurance and upbeat honesty are what you need. The songs read like self-portraying ballads and personal prayers yet speak of what’s common to everyone.

Melodic lyrical lines and great hooks with the savvy instrumental layers of producer Ian Townend, this album invites you into varied terrain. Some canvases you will see: fields of morning light, a darkened backstage, an abandoned desert; some yearnings you will feel: hanging on to love, thirst for rain, the pain of waiting.

Unearth the folksy strumming of Two Worlds and the Enya-like strains of the title song, Vessel of Gold, or explore the upbeat rock pop of Backside of the Desert. Restorative, peaceful, yet fused with up-tempo energy, discover that Vessel of Gold has a healing magic all its own.

Originally from New England, Nancy now resides in Boise Idaho. She penned her first song at age 17 about tea-drinking candlelight hours while living next door to the shore on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Earliest influences were the works of classical composers Vivaldi, Mozart and Beethoven (to name a few), yet the free-flowing folk rock music of the 70's became a strong force that would later incite her to write her own songs rather than perform other people’s works. Playing her tunes in coffee shops around the Treasure Valley, and with recording projects to refine the whole creative process, an artistic musician has emerged comfortable in her original, yet evolving skin.

"The invigorating spirit of this approachable humble woman will astound and encourage you. Her original music straddles many genres and her performances are always an event!" The Library Coffee House

One of the best pieces of work in my collection
Every time I listen to this CD it sounds like the 1st. Of 3500 discs this is one of the best pieces of work in my collection. I haven't taken it out of my player for a full month !!!!!!!


I love Nancy's pure voice and simple and beautiful way with melody.
I love the variety on this album. Her songs are lovely and about real life, which is hard to find these days. She sings her life and that always reflects all of our lives.


Inspirational voice complemented by beautiful music
The lyrics in this album are obviously right from nancy kelly's life. I love her calming voice. She is truly a unique musician.

Bruce Denis

Soulful, unique, and aptly titled
Nancy's beautiful voice complements the beautiful intruments that accompany her. I found the music and vocals refreshing and relaxing. Mix these tracks with Norah Jones, Holly Cole, Diana Krall, or Erin Bode. Soulful, with an easy beat, and lyrics that paint pictures in the back our minds.

We love the song "Two Worlds!"
We love the whole CD, but especially the song "Two Worlds." Nancy has a truly unique and beautiful voice, and her soul speaks volumes through it.

Scott Rittenhouse

The music itself sounds so very good, it causes one to pause and breathe it in!
Musically, the songs are all thoughtfully written, performed flawlessly, and produced so very well! Light, interesting melody lines, emotionally provocative chord progressions, and all of the music pleases my passion for rock, as well as new age music. Nancy completely pulls it off! I love her music more than Dido's (sorry Dido.)

Sharon Miller 'The Write Way'

If you've ever experienced pain and are in need of healing run to this CD
An artist writes best what's in her heart and Nancy Kelly speaks to others from her own pain and experiences through this melodic compilation of songs. Her words satisfy the longing hearts and minds with lyrics that are structured to touch a chord deep in the heart of the listener. The music creates a backdrop that is soothing and invigorating in its creative use of sounds.

Blended from her own life experiences, they resonate from Forever Man to The Backside of the Desert. Real word pictures are put together to give relief from everyday life and mend whatever may be troubling your soul. If you've ever experienced pain and are in need of healing than run to this cd to find the respite you've been longing for!


Soothe your soul.
Buy this CD, listen to 'You' and you will have a new favorite.
