Nicole Atkins Feat. Future Clouds & Radar @ SXSW!

I'm getting ready to head down to Austin on Saturday for SXSW and I'm excited and honored to announce that one of my favorite Austin bands, Future Clouds and Radar will be my backing band for the festival! Their music is a mixture of great storytelling, mystery, psychedelia and heart. Having them backing me up is pretty fitting too as over the last year their leader, Robert Harrison and I have formed a great working relationship as cowriters for some songs on my upcoming album and for a few songs on our side project Sir Parker. I'm really excited to be going down there to play mostly new songs from my upcoming album (still figuring out what i'm going to call it...perhaps i'll just name the album "the black sea," thoughts?)and am also excited to be able to introduce ya'll to future clouds and radar! check out some of their songs here:

Sure wish you could have made a stop by the Dallas/Fort Worth area before Austin. I know its only about 4 hours away but Austin is craziness during SXSW, as you know. I'm gettin very ready to see you again though..Cant wait to hear the new songs!

SXSW (and DirecTV) are the reason I even know you exist, so I'm glad to see you're going back.

How the heck did you get passed over for Lilith Fair by the way? You'd blow the pants off that crowd.

And as for your album title, should you go with the nautical theme, I think you should let one of these two ladies do your artwork.

Hmm... two nautical ideas: "RELATIONSHIPWRECKED!" or "Nicole Atkins and the Ocean of Storms"
