Nikki Lane Releases New Album 'All Or Nothin' Out Now via New West Records
Hailed by Paste as a "13-song mission statement, a country record that banks on the kind of licks you'd hope to hear in Nashville without creeping into the territory of Music Row's fabricated nostalgia" and described by the AV Club as "fiery takes on rebellion, surrender and romance," Nashville renaissance woman Nikki Lane's hotly anticipated sophomore album, All Or Nothin', out now on New West Records, is racking up stellar reviews and turning heads. The album has garnered praise from NPR, who premiered the album as a First Listen last week to Elle, the Nashville Scene and Flavorwire who singled out the record as one "10 Albums You Need to Hear in May," and exclaimed, "it's the attitude that's worth your time."
Lane's "bold, idiosyncratic sound," as NPR put it, has won over radio as this week she set history for 2014 as the #1 most added at Americana radio this year with 35 first week adds. She also scored highest first week chart debut by an artist this year at #18.
Just off the road with Athens rockers The Whigs, Lane is now supporting alt-country Old 97's on a West Coast run and will hit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland this month. She will embark on a headline tour this summer that will kick off in June and take her to many major markets including Atlanta, Houston, Austin, Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, DC, and two nights in New York. Support will be provided by New Mexico singer/songwriter Max Gomez and the Wisconsin-based "north country" group Hugh Bob & The Hustle.
