Country artist Nikki Lane only seemed mellow by contrast to Low Cut Connie. Equal parts polish and twang, her voice rose above an electric guitar, bass, drum set, and her own acoustic guitar as she chanted lines like "Any day or night time/ It's always the right time/ To do the wrong thing" from "Right Time."
