Nikki Lane – Highway Queen

  • April 24, 2017

Nikki Lane follows her stellar 2014 Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) produced retro Americana tinged album All or Nothin’ with Highway Queen – a more stripped-back, classic country affair.
Highway Queen was co-produced by Lane and Jonathan Tyler (Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights) and draws from numerous influences ranging from 50’s girl groups, honky tonk, vintage rock n’ roll and outlaw country. Notable songs include: the catchy first single, “Jackpot”; the energetic rocker and title track “Highway Queen”; the bittersweet ballad “Muddy Waters”; the sharp lament “Companion;” and the heavy hearted closer, “Forever Lasts Forever.” Highway Queen is a solid album and enjoyable listen from start to finish, leaving listeners wanting more. – Written by JFelton
