Nicole Nelson and Dwight Ritcher make up the critically acclaimed, American indie-soul/blues band DWIGHT & NICOLE. Recipients of the 2016 Band of The Year award from the New England Music Awards, and the Boston Music Award's Female Vocalist of the Year. Their single “I Need Love” was named one of the Songs of the Year by the Boston Herald and Nicole, coined “The Voice of Vermont” in a cover story printed in the Burlington Free Press. These accolades followed the release of Nelson's haunting version of Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah,” which became a nationwide hit at #24 on the iTunes pop charts. Last year ended on a high note with a string of sold-out concerts up and down the East Coast, and more nominations: Vocalist of the Year and Best in State.

Audiences and insiders alike are moved by their powerful sound and presence. The future is bright for DWIGHT & NICOLE, as they are right now recording their new album, and first major release, with producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black Keys) at the renowned Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. Expect big things to come.

“There are good voices and then there are great voices. Nicole Nelson is definitely the latter.”
