Daisy Rock Proudly Welcomes Nicole Atkins to their Artist Roster

LOS ANGELES, CA – FEBRUARY 2011 - Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl-guitar company, proudly welcomes singer-songwriter Nicole Atkins to the growing Daisy Rock family.   With her mix of traditional vocal styles and introspective lyrics, she has been compared to singers from the Brill Building era with a mixture of contemporary style.

Daisy Rock teamed up with Atkins through an introduction at the SXSW festival, and jumped at the opportunity to work with such a talented artist. Atkins now plays a Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe in Sea Foam Green and absolutely loves it. When Founder and President of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, Tish Ciravolo, found out about Nicole Atkins wanting to be a part of the Daisy Rock family, she said, “I think it’s awesome that Nicole is playing the Stardust Retro-H De-Luxe because it fits her personality perfectly!”

With her throaty vibrato and nostalgic, orchestrated pop songs, Atkins brings to mind a blend of Roy Orbison, Loretta Lynn, and Jenny Lewis. Extensive performances in New York City helped her attract attention from several local musicians of which she was able to piece together a band. Now operating under the name Nicole Atkins & the Sea, the band has played residencies at Piano's—a popular nightspot in the Lower East Side—which led to a deal with Columbia Records. Atkins released the Bleeding Diamonds EP in 2006, NeptuneCity album in late 2007, and an EP of cover material in 2008.

Nicole Atkins’ new album Mondo Amore was released on February 8, 2011, and she is currently on tour in the United States and Canada to promote the new release. To find out more about Nicole Atkins’ new album and tour dates, please visit www.nicoleatkins.com or www.daisyrock.com/artists.
