Iaan Hughes' Review of "A Game of Swans" in KBCS 91.3FM 'Music of the Moment' Blog

Artist: Nancy K. Dillon

Album: A Game of Swans

Label: Rose Rock Records

It’s been close to 8 years since we’ve had new music from Seattle based singer-songwriter Nancy K. Dillon. Her fine album Game of Swans makes us hope it won’t be quite so long next time. Ms. Dillon’s voice remains flat out gorgeous – a dust-tinged Kate Wolf with the natural western lilt of Mary McCaslin. Come for the voice, but stay for the melodies and fictions that rise and fall like the stars over the lives of gold prospectors, tramps, and immigrants making their way through this sepia-toned American dream.
