Nicole Atkins is an American singer-songwriter. Her influences include 1950s crooner music, 1960s psychedelia, soul music, and the Brill Building style of writing. Atkins has been compared to Roy Orbison and singers from the Brill Building era.
Nicole Atkins gives Kyle Meredith a call to discuss her new LP, Italian Ice. The Nashville-based songwriter talks about being an artist in a city that was hit by a tornado right before COVID-19 crept in and the impact that’s had on her career (Nicole also lived in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina). Born and raised in New Jersey, Atkins also talks about how the album reflects growing up on the boardwalks of Asbury Park, the scary stories her dad would tell, and recording in Muscle Shoals alongside the great Spooner Oldham. Speaking of guests, Spoon’s Brit Daniel, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, and Hamilton Leithauser also make appearances on the album, and Atkins tells us about those collaborations as well.

Nicole is an incredible vocalist and songwriter who’s taken some time since her last record Slow Phaser, to get married, figure out life and write new material. We’ve always been a big fan of her work, and the fact that she’s joined Joe Russo’s Almost Dead on stage makes us appreciate her even more! We sat down to talk to her about the delay between records, writing music and her performances with JRAD….. See for privacy information.
