Nancy Magarill returns to downtown cabaret hotspot Pangea, with a captivating mix of originals, covers, and sacrilegious re-writes of popular show tunes. With "dusty, dusky pipes that gave suggestions of strong whiskey, lit cigarettes and after-hours affairs," she delivers each tune with her unique blues-pop-legit vocals.
Within her originals, no subject is taboo, no lyric frivolous. Her last release, The Carousel, is an infusion of vocals, soaring strings, drums, beats and the usual twists and turns in storytelling that can only come from this no-holds-barred lyricist/composer.
Nancy scored the award winning indie feature "Without" with cellist Dave Eggar and a host of projects with Daniel Mintseris (St. Vincent, David Byrne) for their company, MMmusicLab. She was "resident composer" for NYU Tisch School of the Art's classical studio (composing contemporary and classical scores for Shakespeare and main stage productions). She created the score for Gabrielle Lansner's "Talking Heads, Frocks In Flight" performed at NYC's River To River Festival and composed the music for Yung-Li Dance's "Monkey on My Back" which premiered at Merce Cunningham studios and I-Danse's "Tellus" at NYC's Dixon Place Theater.
