Nancy Norman and Bill Duryea are THE STORYS.

In 2003, THE STORYS were born. When the couple met in their fifties, Bill mainly played guitar on his own. After Bill’s serenades, Nancy picked up the guitar and couldn’t put it down. When they went professional, Bill named the duo THE STORYS. They wanted to fill the spaces between songs with stories about the artist and other musical fun facts.

Together, they specialize in harmony, singing the magic songs of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and more—songs they both are attracted to. Performing Bill’s originals and covering rock and roll, folk, country and a variety of hits from many musical eras with two acoustic-electric guitars and Bill’s harmonica, THE STORYS have played more than 850 gigs in 20 years. Dancing and singing along have always been encouraged!

Bill and Nancy are living their dream of making music and enriching others’ lives!


Bill is also a visual artist working primarily in oils. He describes his work as “luminous impressionism.”
