Nikki Jean

For her new album Pennies In a Jar, Philadelphia singer Nikki Jean collaborated with a who's who of classic American pop songwriters, including such titans as Burt Bacharach, Bob Dylan, and Philly sound architect Thom Bell. This month, the Minnesota-born pianist and songwriter came to Grammy-winning producer Aaron Levinson's Range Recordings in Ardmore. There she sat down for an in-studio interview with Philadelphia Inquirer pop music critic Dan DeLuca, and - along with band members Joseph Secchiaroli, Daniel Pizarro and Steve Padin - performed Pennies' songs she co-wrote with Bell, Jimmy Webb, and Lamont Dozier, of the great Motown songwriting team Holland-Dozier-Holland.
