Rhapsody: Ones to Watch

We here at Rhapsody are always on the hunt for exciting, innovative new musicians. So this year we decided to reinstate our Ones to Watch series, where we focus on one emerging artist for an entire month and provide you with exclusive content from the promising up-and-comer. For the month of May, we've chosen smoky alt country rocker Nikki Lane as our featured artist. The retro-leaning singer-songwriter has just released new album All or Nothin', produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, and its playful bad-girl imagery, vintage guitars and garage-rock beats keep luring us in.
