With this tour, New Yorker Nell has gone back to her roots and followed the traditional sonic footsteps of her idols Dusty Springfield, Aretha Franklin and Carole King. Having recorded an album (to tape!) at Ray Davies Konk Studios in London, Nell’s songs reference a soon to be released debut novel, for which this music is a companion album. You will of course hear the more well-known songs from this BBC Radio 2 darling, including songs of hers covered by Cher and Susan Boyle. Expect a soulful, heartfelt performance from Nell and her band - a classic artist who is at her most comfortable on the road.
