Single Lock Records is an independent record label based in Florence/Muscle Shoals, AL. Founded in 2013, Single Lock shot to international notoriety with releases from St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Dylan LeBlanc, Donnie Fritts and label co-founder John Paul White. “Nicole’s reputation speaks for itself, but we believe this record sets the stage for even bigger things in an already remarkable career,” says Single Lock label manager Reed Watson. “Nicole is a talented artist who is just finding her voice and we are excited about her future. The fact that a New Jersey girl fits so well in our Muscle Shoals home reminds us that the world is a lot bigger than our little corner. We’re proud to have her on board at Single Lock Records.”
GOODNIGHT RHONDA LEE, a vintage soul album inspired legendary artists like Dusty Springfield, Candi Staton, Roy Orbison and Janis Joplin, was first heralded last November with the release of “A Little Crazy,” available now on Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp. Co-written with Chris Isaak, the track premiered via Brooklyn Vegan, which hailed it as “a delicate, soulful ballad.” In addition, Atkins’s stellar live performance of “A Little Crazy” was an undisputed highlight of Oscar® winner Cameron Crowe’s 2016 Showtime series, Roadies.
Named Rolling Stone’s "Top 10 Artists To Watch" in 2007 for her debut album Neptune City, Nicole Atkins has appeared on numerous late night TV shows, including“The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Conan”, and “Later… with Jools Holland”, and featured in media outlets ranging from the New York Times to Time magazine. She has toured throughout the US and Europe, both headlining and also touring with The Black Keys, Mavis Staples, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Primal Scream, Chris Isaak and the Avett Brothers.
