Press / Reviews

“Nancy takes Western Swing to scary places it rarely admits to going. She uses the bad stuff as a motorvator to whip up the good stuff.” 

— Don Allred, The Village Voice

 

Resembles a collision between Guy Clarke's descriptive powers and Mary Coughlan's barrelhouse delivery... McCallion's songs are the centerpiece, richly dipped in localised imagery and language. She writes eloquently on situations other scribes would run from. ” 

— Dirty Linen

 

“ (McCallion's) stories of working-class lives, souls slowly unraveling as a result of economic or spiritual strain, are as instantly believable, witty, at times a bit angry, hinting at a punkish energy that never feels like hipsterism. ” 

— The Riverfront Times, St. Louis, MO

 

“McCallion's songwriting is at its apex. Simple yet potent, fit for dancing or crying in your beer, her songs convey the message that sad luck knows no borders and is a little too comfortable in every cultural environment. They ring of truth and worldliness, yet also harbor that "Oh, what the hell" attitude that keeps the unlucky in love hopeful that the next will be the real thing. ” 

— Daniel Buckley - Tucson Citizen
