About the artists
Violinist and singer/songwriter Nancy Shoop-Wu began her musical life in Connecticut, where she began playing the violin at the age of 9. A graduate of the Yale School of Music, she began her professional career playing in symphony orchestras, landing a position in the Filarmonica de Caracas when she was just 20 years old. After moving to Hawaiʻi to accept a position in the Honolulu Symphony (now Hawaiʻi Symphony), she began to explore a broader musical world as a member of the Honolulu Symphony Pops Orchestra.
 
Inspired by the rich musical world of Hawaii, Nancy found her unique voice as a composer when she began combining her love of Hawaiian, new age, and western classical music. Her original island-inspired songs also feature top Hawaiʻi musicians Jeff Peterson, Ian O’Sullivan, Dean Taba, Garin Poliahu, and Los Angeles arranger, producer and pianist Derek Nakamoto.
 
Nancy has recorded two solo CDs, Beautiful Mana'o and Rainbow Road.
