Nicky Egan's Got Soul06:01

This article is more than 8 years old.

Nicky Egan is a Boston-based soul singer who has absorbed the influences of earlier generations of female vocalists — people like Sarah Vaughn, Janice Joplin and Bonnie Raitt.

Egan grew up in Philadelphia, came to Boston to study at the Berkeley College of music, and formed her first band when she was just 20.

She's just released her debut album called "Good People" — a mix of soul, r&b rock and a voice that sounds more soulful and world weary than her 23 years might suggest.
