Get Away From Me

Nellie McKay
Get Away From Me
Introducing Nellie McKay, a jazz-influenced rock and roll cabaret folk singer. Equal parts blog, coffee shop, poetry slam, basement jam and Broadway show, Get Away From Me is 18 surprise-laden songs. While busy records often indicate lack of conviction, direction or talent, McKay—who sounds a bit like Norah Jones, but interesting, and maybe drunk—pulls off torch (“I Wanna Get Married”), new wave (“Waiter”) and whimsy (“Suitcase Song”) with an unsettling, soulful confidence. She’s 19.
