Nancy Harrow made a strong impression with her Candid recording "Wild Women Don't Have the Blues" in 1960, but it was a long time before she was a full-time singer. Born in New York City, on October 3, 1930, she had studied classical piano extensively from the age of seven before decided to become a dancer and later a jazz singer. After her Candid recording and an album for Atlantic, "You Never Know" (1962), Harrow raised a family and spent time outside of music.
In 1975, Nancy Harrow came back and recorded frequently for Audiophile, Finesse, Inner City, Tono, Gazell, and Soul Note. She is a talented and swinging bop-based singer who wrote all of the material for her 1993 "Lost Lady" release.
