Nicole Atkins is an enormously talented artist who quickly became a favorite at WFUV. From the very first time we heard her song "The Way It Is," we knew that Nicole was special – and judging by the way WFUV listeners have embraced Nicole, it's safe to say that we are all in agreement. Possessing a powerful voice and songwriting ability to match, Nicole is one of popular music's brightest talents. A Jersey girl, she was born and raised in Neptune Township and attended high school in nearby Belmar. That just makes us love her more.
