Dwight & Nicole (Burlington, Vermont)
Dwight & Nicole is a three piece original soul/blues band fronted by Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson. Ritcher and Nelson are both well known on the East Coast for their powerful voices and
songwriting. Together, they have toured up and down the Northeast, growing a fiercely loyal fan base, and self releasing two award winning albums through crowd funding. The Boston Globe calls them "A tour de force that demands much wider success" and describes their sound as "poignant, hard-driving and heavenly".
They both trade off singing leads; he also plays masterful electric guitar, and she plays melodic bass. All the while, layering in harmonies and shouts. The recent addition of powerhouse drummer Ezra Oklan to the band introduces the perfect underlying rhythm. The results are stunning.
Dwight & Nicole’s upcoming EP “Electric Lights” was recorded live to analog tape in less that a week with multi-Grammy Award Nominated producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black Keys, Yoko Ono) at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. In July 2017 they digitally released a single ahead of the album- a shimmering soul-rock anthem called “Wait” that introduced their music to a new wave of fans. With over 300,000 downloads and views in the weeks following it's release, it helped to break new ground for the band who have recently signed signed a distribution deal with Sony/Orchard. Expect the "Electric Lights" EP & their first national tour behind it in March 2018.
“Take R&B, soul, blues and jazz, mix in razor-sharp rock guitar... heat to boiling, and watch your face melt. That's Dwight & Nicole.” ~Relix Magazine
