In contrast to the rich tapestries of debut album, 2007’s Battle and Victory, Wrought Iron takes inspiration from silence and solitude to fuel these strangely gripping, quietly involving songs. Replacing the harp that provided the musical focus for her earlier work, these beautiful, understated compositions allow for a fresh instrumental palette, including guitar, glockenspiel, vibraphone and a hundred-year-old Dulcitone. These instruments are gathered around the piano and a warm, unaffected voice.

She’s in no hurry, Nancy Elizabeth, and sounds as though she has no need to impress. She talks, in her blurb, of writing this material while in rural parts, away from civilisation, where she was really listening to the silence, as well as hearing conversations in a completely musical way – to the rhythm of the words. It’s easy to think this pretentious, until you start listening. It has space, acres of it; space lesser artists would be compelled to fill. This is a sincere and genuine album of songs devoid of contrivance

Singer-songwriter Nancy Elizabeth may sing about being flat broke on third album ‘Dancing’, but it hasn’t stopped her accumulating a piano, several guitars and a host of other instruments in the four years since 2009’s ‘Wrought Iron’. Whether she’s actually poverty-stricken or just pretending, the 29-year-old has put together a set of songs so delicate it has all the impact of a flutter of nymph wings. Nancy employs piano as her main instrument and its comparatively weighty timbre provides a much-needed counterpoint to the floatiness of songs like ‘Heart’ and ‘Desire’, just about preventing.
