"Atkins has a big voice full of longing, Loretta Lynn elegance and slightly surreal folk-pop that evoke moonlit walks with the shadows closing in." - Rolling Stone
Nicole Atkins has the sort of elegant, super-sized voice that belongs to an earlier era. With her throaty vibrato and lushly orchestrated pop songs, she made her debut in 2006, bringing to mind a blend of Roy Orbison, Loretta Lynn, and Jenny Lewis.
On 2007's Neptune City, she set up shop in the Eisenhower years, channeling Phil Spector via a moody mix of piano-bar ballads, torch songs, and girl-group melodies. Mondo Amore, released earlier this year, continues the trend by keeping an eye on the past, but it shifts everything forward by a decade, mining blues-rock and late-'60s psychedelia.
