Dirty Wink

Dirty Wink is a trio who calls Eugene home.  The blend of psychedelic prog pop shows off their musicianship.  With intricate guitar overdubs, gritty melodic hooks and a bass  with strings that are upside-down left handed, Dirty Wink has a sound that is eerily  recognizable; think Broken Social Scene, Pinback, Mars Volta, or Animal Collective.

Formed for a one-time gig at a Halloween party over four years ago, Dirty Wink has spent years  honing their craft opening for the likes of Marcy Playground before recording their self-titled release last fall. Finding a solid footing in the Northwest music scene Dirty Wink has successfully graduated from playing house parties and local bars up and down the I 5 corridor.



Nancy grew up in Eugene, graduating from Churchill before heading off to the big city of Portland, and later on to Los Angeles, CA where she pursued her interests in event coordination. After 5 years she returned to Portland where she began her career as a music journalist. After writing for local and national publications Nancy started her own music magazine, Only Local Music, highlighting and promoting local musicians.
In 2008 she was the master mind behind the online music magazine, Oregon Music News, Oregon's Only Online Music Magazine. Cultivating several alliances with organizations such as Music Millennium, The Portland Jazz Festival, the Waterfront Blues Association, The Mississippi Street Fair, and like groups, Nancy quickly grew the fresh start up from a mere idea to fruition within the scope of two years.
Concurrently she sought out and pursued business management consulting and continued her own business, Navigation Consulting. With over 20 years experience managing every kind of business imaginable Nancy has been fortunate enough to further engage her purpose of helping others to helping business owners actually grow their business.
Returning to her other passion, promoting music as well as musicians, Nancy continues to write about music and band across the state.
