you just can't escape your destiny. If you had told Nell
ten years ago that she would be earning a living as a musician
she probably would have laughed. But over the years it has
evolved into entrepreneurial career with a blend of teaching,
gigging and songwriting/recording.
a musician, Nell has performed and composed across the spectrum
of pop/ rock/ alternative. Her current material consists of
songs that are deliberately composed to sound as good in a solo
acoustic performance as with a full studio production. Her third
solo album, "Lazy Dreamer", was released in January 2016.
She and her husband Sean currently perform as an acoustic duo with guitar/piano and percussion. Their set list is heavy on the 1990s, but includes older and newer songs as well.
Nell has a bachelor's degree in sociology from Elmhurst
College. She worked for several years in the social
services and education fields. In
January 2014 she and her husband relocated to Hampton, VA, where
she has continued to improve her acoustic act and songwriting,
and grow her music teaching business. In December 2017
they welcomed their first son.
