For the second summer in a row, the critically-acclaimed Nicole Atkins and her band, The Sea, will open six shows for Chris Isaak in July. In addition Nicole Atkins & The Sea will play a run of stateside headline and festival dates — including Lollapalooza and All Points West — throughout the summer and early autumn. Prior to her North American gigs, Nicole and her band are slated to perform at a series of prestigious European festivals in late June and early July.

With her debut album, “Neptune City,” released last October drawing rave reviews, Nicole Atkins & The Sea spent much of early 2008 on the road beginning with a major North American club tour launched in January highlighted by a well-received performance in Austin in March at the annual South By Southwest (SxSW) Festival.

In addition to her concert dates with Chris Isaak last summer, Nicole and her band toured extensively throughout the past year, performing a series of shows with The Raveonettes as well as their own headline concerts. In August 2007, Atkins soared to #2 on the Google trends list (searches that have increased significantly) on August 13, shortly after an American Express commercial, featuring Nicole and her music, had premiered during a PGA television broadcast.

Earlier this year, Nicole Atkins was a participant in the Barnes & Noble “Discover Music’ series which issued a CD, available exclusively through Barnes & Noble, featuring Nicole’s ‘Maybe Tonight,” “‘The Way It Is” and her cover of the Mama’s & the Papa’s “Words of Love.”
