Her straightforward honest vocals draw you into her world, exposing glimpses of everything from the deepest corners of the heart to the liberating power of hairdressers. ...this collection of well-written originals explains why Richards was a three-time finalist at the famed Telluride Troubadour contest."
- The Victory Review

Reinhold and Richards write songs full of insightful lyrics and thought-provoking attitudes. Their exquisite vocal harmonizing draws you into their world, exposing everything from the raw funny edges of life to the deepest corners of the heart. It is the combination of their richly textured voices, solid backing guitar, incisive lyrics and ability to make a personal connection with their audience that make them dynamic and accessible performers. Though new to performing together, they share the stage like two old friends, making their audiences feel equally at home. And this makes sense because they each have solid musical careers behind them.

Nancy Reinhold is perhaps most well known as one of Canada's Wyrd Sisters, the thrice Juno (Canada’s Grammy) Award-nominated band she co-founded in 1991in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As the primary songwriter and lead vocalist/guitar player for The Wyrd Sisters, Nancy has performed numerous times at every major Folk Festival in Canada and twice at the Kerrville Folk Festival, one of the oldest and best–known in the US. With the Wyrds, Reinhold has toured down the west coast of the United States and extensively throughout Canada, including appearances with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra London in Ontario.

During Reinhold’s tenure, The Wyrd Sisters were best known for their incisive lyrics and stellar vocals along with their ability to make a strong personal connection with their audiences. As band leader, Nancy was instrumental in creating the atmosphere that encouraged that connection as well as writing many of the bands' most
memorable and touching songs.

In 2003, Nancy's writing was recognized in Country Music Television's Songwriting Contest with an Honorable Mention for her song "Back Into Your Arms".

Nancy left The Wyrd Sisters in January of 2003 to pursue new musical adventures. Ultimately this led to a move to Seattle and a new partnership with award-winning performing-songwriter, Marjorie Richards.

Richards has been a top 10 finalist in the 13 national and local songwriting competitions, including a first place win at Seattle's Lakefolkfest. Her debut CD, entitled, here, was selected by the Performing Songwriter magazine as one of their Top 12 Independent Recordings in 1997. This 13-song disc garnered outstanding reviews and continues to receive consistent airplay from more than 100 radio stations around the country; it has been played on nationally syndicated NPR radio and some AAA stations including Seattle’s KMTT The Mountain.

She has toured up and down the West Coast, performed at the National Women’s Music Festival in Indiana; the Rockrgrrl conference in Seattle; the South Florida Folk Festival; the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Emerging Songwriter showcase in Colorado; as well as at a variety of venues and festivals across the Northwest.
