Nellie McKay’s new album “Bagatelles,” is like a basket of freshly picked garden songs - just a merry and melancholy bouquet of music, as resilient as a wildflower, and as moody as a rose.  Produced and performed by Nellie McKay, Bagatelles is the companion EP to 2018’s full length album, Sister Orchid. 

Sister Orchid is Nellie’s seventh album, starting with Get Away From Me  (“a tour de force” – The New York Times), including Normal As Blueberry Pie:  A Tribute to Doris Day (“among the killer overhauls of American standards” – The New York Times) and My Weekly Reader, music of the ‘60s (“..kicks serious butt. The results are beautiful.” – PopMatters), her second collaboration with famed Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick.  

She has won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of Polly Peachum on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera, performed onscreen in the films PS I Love You and Downtown Express, and her music was used in Rumor Has It, Monster-in-Law, PS I Love You, Gasland, Last Holiday and Private Life. 

Nellie’s music has been heard on Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Weeds, Grey’s Anatomy, NCIS, Nurse Jackie, and SMILF, and she has appeared on TV shows including The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan, Ferguson, and The View.  Nellie has made numerous radio appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, A Prairie Home Companion, eTown, and Marion McPartland’s Piano Jazz.  

A recipient of PETA’s Humanitarian Award and the Humane Society’s Doris Day Music Award in recognition of her dedication to animal rights, Nellie is an annoyingly vocal advocate for feminism, civil rights and other deeply felt progressive ideals.  

“Thanks to (McKay), the Great American Songbook has a living,
 breathing present as well as a glorious past” – Boston Globe

“McKay comes on as a Harlem Holly Golightly, a social activist with
 a disarming mastery of pop vernacular.” – Los Angeles Times
