Singer Songwriter

My Story

Nancy Bates is a Barkindji Woman, and an accomplished signer-songwriter.  She has been under the wings of national treasure Archie Roach for 3 years as a backing vocalist and gutarist for his wonderful songs and music. She tours nationally and internationally as a band member and support act.

In her own right, Nancy is a prolific vocalist and songwriter who caught the attention of Archie Roach and his Manager Jill Shelton in 2014. Archie Roach rates Nancy as one of the finest singer-songwriters in Australia, who deserves to be heard.

2017 is a an exciting year for Nancy, which will see the release of her first Album in collaboration with The Baker Suite. This is a highly anticipated release which contains brilliant and unique tracks. Her love, pain and humor are passionately wrapped in lyrics and melody that leave the listener richer from the experience.
