Welcome to my Sonoran Desert life.
I created the South~Western genre to describe the music, stories and poetry written by my life in the Desert Southwest. I write, sing and tell stories to share with you this wild and dangerous place I live, because deep down, I think you also hunger for big skies, adventure and a little something to tame.

"The Heart of It All" is my registered and branded workshop which teaches the importance of and guides you on how to leave a legacy of your life's journey through written or spoken word, music and art.
Best of the West Review by Rick Huff
"Not that she didn’t do so before now but, since going solo, A r i z o n a ’ s N a n c y Elliott has produced some especially interesting music. You’ll find more of it here. Also, you’ll discover effective use of World Music elements in the arrangements...including udu, conga and tumba as well as bone, Pan and Native flutes! Western picks include Elliott originals “Thirty Some Miles,” “A Crazy Horse,” the swinging “Starlight Ballroom,” “Horseman’s Hands” (a co-write with Stewart MacDougall), “Gypsy Heart” and a latter day McIntyre/Tyson collaboration “Desert Motel.” Among the seventeen participating players on the tracks you’ll see some old friends from various Western and Bluegrass groups including Benny Young, Bruce Huntington, Walt Michael and Stewart MacDougall, among others. The sound they all make is full and satisfying. This album is enjoyable on a number of different levels. Eleven tracks, highly recommended. CD: (available through www.NancyElliottMusic.com) "
