Nancy Walker and Larry Clyman
Nancy Walker had been a linchpin in the quirky, quite successful trio from Chicago, "Sons of the Never Wrong." Nancy contributed vocals and writing to the Sons best known album, "Consequence of Speech," before stepping out on her own. Through that project she met husband and musical partner Larry Clyman, whose guitar and production work has become an important element in her sound. Her sound? A little Joni Mitchell. A little Buffy Saint-Marie. A little Patsy Cline.
New York native Larry Clyman enjoyed a strong foothold in the Chicago music scene for almost fifteen years. After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Folklore and Jazz Studies, Larry migrated west to study at the prestigious Musicians Institute. Years later Larry headed back to the mid-west where he toured and recorded with Chicago blues legend Lonnie Brooks and the Americana band “Big Shoulders.” While living in Chicago Larry also performed with local favorites, “The Otters” and “Sons of The Never Wrong."
