Singer, composer and actor Nellie McKay brings a comedic flair to her stage shows, including Nellie with a Z, in which she plays a cabaret veteran three times her age. Her music also has been featured on the television series Weeds, Grey's Anatomy and Boardwalk Empire. Her latest album, My Weekly Reader, is out March 24.

On this Song Travels, McKay and host Michael Feinstein team up for "Pennies from Heaven" and "The Nearness of You," and she performs her original "Beneath the Underdog."
