Born in London and raised in Harlem, 25-year-old Nellie McKay has already carved out a name for herself as a singer, songwriter, musician, actress and comedian. Smart, quirky, unpredictable and highly original, her albums Get Away from Me and Pretty Little Head have received positive reviews and attracted a cultish audience. Hear McKay perform a concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Blending jazz, pop and rap with the piano as the focal point, McKay is noted for her sharp and sardonic lyrics, as well as her outspoken views on animal rights and politics. McKay's new album is titled Obligatory Villagers.
