Atkins doesn't treat getting sober and navigating major life transitions as a somber affair… Audacious is more like it, and her album's all the more riveting for her resistance to being buttoned-up… animated by a spirit of impulsiveness, it's also very much the product of artful craft, burnished not only by the symphonic production, but her Brill Building-style grasp of rich melody and sturdy structure.” - NPR First Listen

New track and video for "Listen Up" premieres on NPR

Nicole's new single and video, "Listen Up", premiered on NPR this week, with a hilarious music video directed by Tim Duggan. The song is from her upcoming studio album, GOODNIGHT RHONDA LEE, out July 21st on Single Lock Records.

I wrote ‘Listen Up’ as a note to self, to stop beating myself up over bad self talk and fear and listen to the good advice of others. I gave it a soul meets Fraggle Rock treatment because that’s the sound of what’s real and positive to me. It’s basically, ’Don’t be your worst enemy. Surround yourself with good people and let them help you.

I came up with the concept of the video after a string of unfortunate events. After a gig I fell into a sinkhole in a parking lot in Knoxville. I got pretty hurt, but it could’ve been a lot worse. I was trying to find the humor in it so I came up with the idea of me being the star of a bunch of Fail videos ala ’America’s Funniest Home Videos.’ You really gotta look where you’re going sometimes.
