The future of soul music is in very good hands. Audiences and insiders alike have been wowed by the music and live shows of the up and coming indie-soul band Dwight+Nicole. See and hear them live in NYC, next Thursday, April 13th at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) 10pm. Located at 196 Allan St, NY, NY 10002 Tickets are on sale now.
Singers Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson are both known on the East Coast for their soulful voices. In this band, they clearly enjoy trading off singing leads and backing each other up with harmonies & joyous shouts. In addition, he plays masterful electric guitar, and she lays down the groove on the bass. The recent addition of drummer Ezra Oklan to the mix introduces the perfect underlying rhythm. The results are powerful.
Dwight+Nicole just finished recording a remarkable new album Electric Lights with multi-Grammy Award Nominated producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black Keys) at the renowned Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. The combination of this band and producer is a match made in heaven.
2017 is upon us in full force. We were honored to kick things off as the first band of the year to be featured in the Apollo Music Cafe series in Harlem, NY. That was a powerful show to say the least, and a perfect way to start this year. We then stopped to play at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia (with the very talented Anthony Davis) and then rushed back to VT where we had the honor of speaking and performing for an estimated 20,000 people for the historic Unity Rally on the steps of the State House in Montpelier, Vermont. It was an honor to have been part of such an outpouring of love and peaceful discussion about our important next steps together as a nation.
Lots of new updates to come.... including the release of our brand new single VERY SOON! Stay tuned + Thank you for being there with us. We are with you.
