Young Songbird Nikki Yanofsky Preparing Debut Album

Introducing Nikki Yanofsky, the 15-year-old singing sensation set to take the world by storm. Raised on jazz, Nikki has been singing all her life and has been compared to greats Billie Holliday, Judy Garland, and Ella Fitzgerald. Her hometown newspaper, the Montreal Gazette, says of her voice, "there is a richness and a maturity and a heart and an effortlessness that divas twice or three times her age would kill for."

Now, this energetic and gifted teenager - with a smile as big as her voice - is preparing a new album full of re-imagined jazz standards, folk classics and original material. Set for an early 2010 release, Nikki's album was produced by Phil Ramone and Jesse Harris (Norah Jones), and will showcase her songwriting collaborations with Harris and lengendary singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith. Another highlight includes a song written for her by the indie darling Feist. For a taste of what is to come, check out videos from Nikki's RawSessions, where she performs her original song "For Another Day" and covers the Beatles, Norah Jones and more.
