Nellie illustrated in this week's New Yorker
Dec. 11: Nellie McKay—singer, songwriter, pianist, ukulele shredder—has just released her fifth album, “Home Sweet Mobile Home.” This new set of original compositions follows last year’s “Normal as Blueberry Pie,” a collection of songs associated with Doris Day. That was a nice album, if a little monochromatic. The new one covers a wide range of pop styles, from rock and soul to Latin and reggae, and is a delight. In concert, McKay is funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented.
