Nicole Atkins & The Sea

Summertime means free concerts here in the Capital Region, and tonights show was truly stellar. Nicole Atkins and The Sea are from Brooklyn/Jerz and she has been a true up-and-comer for quite some time (Featured in Paste, Yahoo Music, and Rolling Stone). She played the Austin City Limits Music Festival last September, but I missed her. She was featured as WXPN's Artist to Watch for February 2008 and is hot on the heels of playing every major music festival in American (Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, XPN Festival, Outside Lands, All Points West). The show was suppose to be outside, but due to the rain (again) it was moved inside Revolution Hall. If you haven't heard of her you should check her out. She's playing with My Morning Jacket tomorrow night (6/19/2008) on Conan.
She has an amazing voice and knows how to use it.
