Nicole Pays Tribute to David Bowie, Performing “Heroes” w/ Postmodern Jukebox

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 1.30.43 PM

Nicole has teamed up with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox to pay tribute to the late great David Bowie with a stunning rendition of “Heroes”. The artists are also celebrating World Cancer Day by donating proceeds from the single to support cancer research.

“Scott and I used to sing jazz standards together back in the days when we were in Sleep No More in NYC, and we’ve been waiting for the right time to record something together,” adds Atkins. “We each have a parent that are cancer survivors and have so many friends that have been similarly affected by this disease. After David Bowie’s passing it seemed a fitting tribute and the right time to come together and record one of his songs and help raise money for cancer research.”

 

“I was thinking of ways to honor the incredible legacy of David Bowie and got a call from my friend Nicole Atkins,” says Bradlee. “She has the kind of voice that expresses pure emotion in every note, and I knew instantly that I had found the right vocalist for this tribute. As we discussed song choices, we talked about Bowie’s fight with cancer, and how cancer has affected the lives of so many around us.  So this performance of ‘Heroes’ is dedicated not only to Bowie, but to all the heroes out there – whether family, friend, or stranger – that have battled cancer.”

About

Nicole Atkins about_DSC7033_DSC7019

Internationally acclaimed American musician Nicole Atkins is a rare artist whose timeless songwriting and raw, emotional voice spans the ages. The miasma of faded glamour and nostalgic pop noir of her critically lauded début album, Neptune City (2007), secured her place in Rolling Stone’s “Top 10 Artists To Watch,” where they praised her “voice full of longing and Loretta Lynn elegance.” Her second album, the blues-oriented Mondo Amore (2011), was an unflinchingly honest album reflecting on a time of great personal turmoil for Nicole.

Slow Phaser, Nicole’s much anticipated third album, sees her reunited with Neptune City producer Tore Johansson (The Cardigans, Franz Ferdinand, Saint Etienne, New Order) and features a number of songs co-written with the legendary musician/producer Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds/Grinderman/The Cramps/Sonic Youth).

Nicole’s television appearances have included “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Conan”, and “Later… with Jools Holland”, and she has been featured in dozens of magazines and newspapers, ranging from the New York Times to The Guardian (UK) to Time magazine. She has toured internationally throughout the US and Europe, both headlining and also touring with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Primal Scream and the Avett Brothers. She is also a radio host on Sirius XM’s Spectrum channel.
