Cattaneo & Beaudette Collaboration

June 20, 2017

Nancy Beaudette met Susan Cattaneo in Austin a couple of years ago, a fate which would result in collaboration and friendship. “We’ve co-authored a number of songs to date, but perhaps the most precious was our first, ‘Fade To Blue'”, says Nancy.

We’re thrilled to let you know that Susan included the song on her ‘double-album’ project, “The Heart and The Hammer” which was released this month. Nancy both sings and plays guitar on the track with Susan.

From the first cut to the last, this is an exceptional CD. The songwriting is flawless and Susan’s voice is superb. We hope you’ll add this to your music collection.

“No matter what happens around me, there is an incredible amount of joy in making music with people I love. And that’s what this album is all about: sharing all those different musical experiences and collaborations with you.” – Susan Cattaneo

“Peace Date” Video Release

April 21, 2017

“Peace Date” was inspired by an experience I had walking down the street in Cape Town, South Africa this past January. I saw a street vendor singing and smiling, obviously so happy that I had to engage him. I asked what he was singing about and he pointed to the sky saying, “We are light in the darkness.” Nur and I took it from there. Nur Felix is an incredible songwriter/artist from Cape Town and I was honoured to co-write this song with him. Help us spread the message around the world.

You can also buy the MP3 – and when you do, every single penny raised will go towards helping Nur finish recording his CD. Follow this link to donate: http://moonlitpond.com/peace-date/

‘Sisters of a Different Skin’ Song Release

January 21, 2017

This past December, Nancy had the amazing privilege of being part of the Lucy Stone Singers, a fabulous group of talented women who said YES when Susan Cattaneo put out the call to be part of the recording of, “Sisters of A Different Skin”.

Susan Cattaneo, is an award-winning songwriter and Berklee professor, and a true advocate for women’s rights around the world. Recalling the inspiration for its creation, she says, “This song started as an a cappella voice memo in my phone. Many recent events in the news inspired me to write this song. It feels like it’s an important time to talk about gender equality and empowerment. I had this image of this chorus of women of all ages, races and musical genres singing it. Fortunately, I’ve worked with many wonderful women in the New England music scene, and they all came together to sing it with me.”

All proceeds from sales of the single will go to Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology. Please support this important organization and buy the song here!

“Fa La La” New Holiday CD is Released

October 29, 2012

Moonlit Pond Records is pleased to announce the release of “Fa La La” – a holiday CD by Nancy Beaudette featuring NINE original Christmas songs!

“I dust off these old songs when December comes along”, a line from “In Our Home”, couldn’t be truer for Nancy Beaudette. She recalls singing carols with her family from a tender age, and it flourished into a lifelong passion the year she found her very own guitar under the Christmas tree.  “Fa la la” is a collection of nine original Holiday songs spanning emotions of festive joy, innocence, peace and longing.

Click here to get your copy today!

Here is a brief overview of the songs:

1. “Fa la la” – a spirited song celebrating the excitement that kids have preparing for Santa Claus.

2. “Silence Tonight” delivers a powerful message of the peace all Mother’s long for when their sons and daughters are serving in the military.

3. “In Our Home” recalls happy memories of Christmas while growing up.

4. “Most of all Baby (I Want You)” is an invitation to get cuddled up with the one you love.

5. “Gold and Myrrh” longs to reclaim the innocence of a child at this time of year, comparing it to the precious gifts given to the Christ child by the visiting Kings.

6. “I think I’ll buy a Christmas Tree” is an acoustic ballad about regaining strength to celebrate Christmas after separation or divorce.

7. “My Silvertone Guitar” was co-written with Louisa Branscomb (of Steel Rails fame), and is a wonderful story about riding the rails to Nashville on Christmas Eve knowing there would be a new guitar waiting under the tree.

8. “Merry Christmas to Me” is a tender ballad about spending Christmas alone after the loss of a loved one.

9. “The Babe of Bethlehem” celebrates the birth of the Christ child and invites us to follow the Star.
