New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Dwight & Nicole
just released their powerful new single, "Wait," on July 4th digitally, and the accompanying video is set for release on the morning of Monday, July 24th via the band's social media pages. Folks may already recognize one half of Dwight & Nicole, as Nicole Nelson
was a finalist on "The Voice
" (season 3), and tore up the iTunes charts with her rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
Later this summer, Dwight & Nicole
will release "Wait" in 45 rpm vinyl format, with the follow-up single, "Hi Low" as the B-side. Dwight & Nicole
just finished recording their new album, Electric Lights, with multi-Grammy Award-nominated producer Joel Hamilton (Aaron Neville, The Meters, The Black
Keys) at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY. With the shimmering soul-rock anthem "Wait" out on iTunes now, the full album will be released in the fall.
Dwight & Nicole
is a three-piece blues-soul-rock band fronted by Dwight Ritcher and 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 electric 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.
"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
