Nancy Vincic is a 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Stoney Creek, Ontario Canada. Her passion and love for music began at an early age always singing and performing in front of family and friends. Her love for rock and roll music was highly influenced by listening to her parent’s records of Queen, Bon Jovi, and many Canadian artists like Bryan Adams and Amanda Marshall. She began to perform at open mic nights, and began to compete in singing competitions across the city. At age 14 she learned piano and picked up the guitar at 16, and decided to write and perform her own music. It wasn’t until she attended high school that she knew she would pursue a career in music. She was a lead vocalist of her high school pop/rock choir the BR Xpression singing songs by Led Zepplin, AC/DC, and Pink. It was there she gained experience in performing in front of a number of audiences and various venues across the city and also across North America. Within her four years of high school, the Xpression traveled to Chicago, New York City, Myrtle Beach and Nashville to compete in the Heritage Music Festivals. In 2014, she was the recipient of the Maestro Award in Nashville Tennessee for her Vocal Performance. Following high school, she performed at various venues such as Stonewalls Hamilton, The Casbah, and in 2014, she sang the National Anthem at the Toronto Argonauts game. In 2015, she was the recipient of the Emerging Artist award at the City of Hamilton Arts Awards, as well as a performer at the Pan Am Games Promenade Event at Gore Park in Hamilton. She was also accepted into the world renowned music school Berklee College of Music. In 2016, she moved to Toronto to pursue her musical studies at one of Canada’s most prestigious music schools Humber College. She is working to complete her Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice.
