SXSW Stuff: Nicole Atkins

One of the best sets I saw at SXSW was from Nicole Atkins (whom we reviewed a little while back) at the Industry Of Music/Oxfam America party. Her voice is absolutely amazing live, and her band, The Sea, suit her songs perfectly. She's one of those artists that can totally capture a crowd and keep them hypnotized for the full length of her set.

Here's how she looked there:

She also played an earlier, well-received show with Jersey's The Parlor Mob subbing for The Sea, who were snowbound in Brooklyn and couldn't get to Austin in time for that gig. Gothamist has video of them doing Leadbelly's "Where Did You Sleep Last Night", and a cool short interview video as well.

Her full length album hits the streets on June would be great to see this very cool chick breakout and get the national exposure and success she deserves.
