From the start of her career, Nellie McKay made it abundantly clear that music wouldn't be the only device she'd utilize to be outspoken and provocative. Along with her genre-defying 2004 debut, Get Away From Me, her politics dared you to shy away from her intentions, whether it was for the environment, animal welfare or feminism. In the past dozen years, Nellie released ﬁve more eclectic studio albums including last year's My Weekly Reader, an album of 60's covers with themes of drugs and politics. Incidentally, the ensuing twelve years have not tempered her activism; Nellie is still ﬁghting for the causes she's passionate about including her tireless, on-the-ground campaigning for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Our conversation took place on the eve of the New York primary, where ultimately Sanders would lose to Hillary Clinton.
