Nicole Atkins, one of New Jersey’s most talented young singer-songwriters, has signed on as a host on SiriusXM satellite radio’s The Spectrum (channel 28), and will be on the air Saturdays and Sundays from 6 a.m. to noon. She will host her first show this Saturday.
According to a press release, she will do the show from SiriusXM’s New York studios but “will also be able to do the show from the road occasionally when she’s touring.”
Atkins released her third studio album, Slow Phaser, last year, and has shows coming up at the Stone Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park (opening for The Avett Brothers) on Aug. 16, and Webster Hall in New York (opening for JD McPherson) on Oct. 9.
The musical territory of “The Spectrum” is described on the SiriusXM web site as “New Rock Meets Classic Rock.”
