Featured PledgeMusic Offers from Nicole Atkins

We reintroduced you to a favorite songstress of ours, Nicole Atkins, with her live EP Live from The Eldon Thacker Show at City Winery Nashville a few months back. A performer that Spin magazine once called “the best live band of the festival” at SXSW 2011, Nicole’s charisma has always kept her fans coming back for more.

Now, with her new album Goodnight Rhonda Lee, she’s put that glittering personality of hers on full display, and get more than a dozen zany, sincere, and fascinating updates from in the studio; taking you behind-the-scenes with every step of her creative process.

The titular Rhonda Lee is Atkins’ alter-ego, the one-time alcoholic she leaves behind on this stunning, almost wincingly personal set. Her fourth album, three years in the making, was worth the wait. Atkins has never been a traditional singer-songwriter. Here she shifts to full chanteuse mode, mixing country-politan with a ’60s, Phil Spector-styled approach that sounds like nothing else in contemporary music. It’s big, bold, cinematic and manages to be both sprawling and introspective. She combines Patsy Cline with Nancy Sinatra, k.d. lang and Chris Isaak, the latter who contributes songwriting to a spectacularly original, compelling work that is exhilarating and timeless.
