Indie Pop, Pop, Singer-Songwriter

Singer-songwriter Nellie McKay emerged with her playful piano-pop and vocal jazz in the mid-2000s, delivering her first five albums in seven years. Following 2015’s My Weekly Reader, a covers album of ’60s rock songs as varied as “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” and “Wooden Ships,” McKay is gearing up to release Sister Orchid, preceded by its lead single, a bittersweet rendition of the jazz standard “The Nearness of You.”
