Nicole Nelson and Dwight Ritcher make up the American roots band DWIGHT & NICOLE. This project began out of a shared love of classic soul and blues music, following the footsteps of greats such as Mavis Staples, John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Nina Simone, and Etta James. Ritcher and Nelson have made a name for themselves around the Northeast as captivating performers, multi-instrumentals, and strong songwriters. They possess powerful voices that stop you in your tracks and command your attention. The two trade off singing lead while Ritcher plays masterful electric guitar, and Nelson lays down deep grooves on the bass. The recent addition of Ezra Oklan on the drums provides the perfect underlying rhythm.
Dwight & Nicole just finished recording their 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.
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
