Singer-songwriter-keyboardist Nancy Rost has been called "the love child of Tom Lehrer and Tom Waits" (KnowYourMusic.com). Her distinctive songs combine a jazz-influenced piano style with lyrics that are quirky, witty and heartfelt, often all at once.

a tart, though
refreshing, concoction of high witticisms and ardent applause."
