July 17, 2015 at 11:40 AM (PT)
Singer/songwriter NICOLE ATKINS has been named a host on SIRIUSXM's THE SPECTRUM on SATURDAYS' and SUNDAYS from 6a-noon (ET), starting tomorrow.
ATKINS will be based at SIRIUSXM's NEW YORK studio, but will also be able to do the show from the road occasionally while on tour. SIRIUSXM's THE SPECTRUM is channel 28 via satellite and is available through the SIRIUSXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
The pop noir of ATKINS' critically praised 2007 debut, "Neptune City," shows off a rare artist who sings of faded glamor and nostalgia, earning her a spot on ROLLING STONE's "Top 10 Artists to Watch." Her second album, the blues-oriented "Mondo Amore" (2011), reflected on a time of great personal turmoil for ATLOMS.
Her third album, "Slow Phaser," features a number of songs co-written with the legendary musician/producer JIM SCLAVUNOS (NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, GRINERMAN, THE CRAMPS, SONIC YOUTH).
ATKINS has performed on "The Late Show with DAVID LETTERMAN," CONAN and "Later... with JOOLS HOLLAND," while touring with NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, PRIMAL SCREAM and the AVETT BROTHERS.
