Nellie (McKay) In The News

More raves for Nellie McKay and her new album, Get Away From Me:

The Washington Post:

Let Nellie McKay become a huge star. Let her find fame and fortune and fantabulous success. Because at just 19, this supremely gifted, charming and darkly funny New York oddball has all the makings of the first great singer-songwriter of the young century.

Rolling Stone review:

McKay's penchant for offhand satire and warped musical-comedy allusions aligns her more closely to skewed songsmiths such as Randy Newman and Van Dyke Parks.

me too - i gotta pick this up...
btw - perhaps she doesn't like the norah jones comparisons - contrast her debut album title w/jones' - rolling stone pointed this out!

Wow, she totally inspires me. After watching the Letterman video and listening to the recordings of Sari and David on NPR, I had to have the album. I can't wait until it gets here. As an 18 year old musician, I'm inspired by everything I've heard from her. If I work hard maybe one day I'll have the skill to write songs as wonderful as Miss McKay.
