A sharp and thoughtful artist lurking beneath the surface of a sunny, playful performer, Nellie McKay is a singer-songwriter who has earned a reputation for her smoldering voice, wry sense of humor, and sharply tuned social conscience. With a sound that is part cabaret, part sparkly pop, McKay's songs are witty and stylish variations on the themes of the Great American Songbook sprinkled with satirical observations of the world that we live in. In addition to touring with her own band, McKay is an acclaimed Broadway actress and recording artist.
McKay's bold personality shines through in every project she tackles. In her newest album, Sister Orchid, McKay takes ten classic love songs and seasons them with her own signature flavor. Featuring classics such as "My Romance," "In A Sentimental Mood" and "The Nearness Of You," the album evokes feelings of dusty rooms, faded beauty, and heartache. It is a compilation that sounds as if you've caught Nellie at an upright piano late at night with a glass of wine as she sings solely for herself and her memories.
