With an intuitive understanding of melody and dynamics, Nancy Elizabeth brings a refreshingly Northern turn of phrase to her debut album, Battle and Victory. The Lancashire-born singer’s down-to-earth songs are brought to life by her warm and unaffected voice.

Essentially though, its Elizabeth’s voice which acts as anchor for each of Battle & Victory’s thirteen cuts. At 23, Elizabeth’s vocal delivery is engaging both for it’s emotional restraint and for the soft Lancashire accent which permeates her winding narratives.
