Nellie McKay has... performed Brecht on Broadway; opened for Lou Reed at Carnegie Hall; sung Woody Allen movie songs at the Hollywood Bowl; duetted with Eartha Kitt and Triumph The Insult Comic Dog; played Hilary Swank’s sister on film; paid tribute to Doris Day; joined forces with Laurie Anderson, Joan Osborne, Suzanne Vega and the Brooklyn Philharmonic at Brooklyn Academy of Music; written for New York Times Book Review and Huffington Post; recorded for the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire;” contributed songs to the documentary Gasland; and recently had a week-long run in her one-woman musical comedy at Feinstein’s at Loews Regency in NYC! Beneath a charming melodic surface is a cutting wit and a sharply tuned social conscience.

“An ingenuous naïf with a torch singer’s sophistication”—New York Times
