DWIGHT AND NICOLE
Dwight & Nicole is a three piece original blues-soul-rock 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 album “Electric Lights” was recorded live to analog tape in just 6 days, with multi-Grammy Award Nominated producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black Keys, Yoko Ono) at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. This Summer, they digitally released their first single, a shimmering soul-rock anthem called “Wait” that has begun to introduce their music to a whole new wave of fans. With over 300,000 downloads and views in the weeks following it's release, it has begun to break new ground for the band. Expect one more single to come out ahead of the album (later this Fall) and their first nationwide tour in early 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
