New Year's Eve Celebration with Dwight & Nicole
Dwight & Nicole is an American Roots band formed by recording artists Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson. Their performances have inspired comparisons to some of the greats — Etta James & John Lee Hooker, The Rolling Stones & The Staple Singers — but it is their own fresh blend of spirited blues, rock, and gospel that will land them a spot among the celebrated music makers. Following their critically acclaimed independent release !Signs, the Boston Globe called them “A tour de force” and named them among the “25 Most Stylish of the Year”. They have garnered 4 Boston Phoenix award nominations, 6 Boston Music Award nominations and Nelson just nabbed a BMA for “Female Vocalist of The Year”.
In September of 2012 Nicole appeared on NBC’s #1 hit show The Voice; knocking out all four coaches and winning the hearts of millions with her heartfelt rendition of Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah.” The song was a hit of its own, rising to #26 on the iTunes Pop charts, and propelling a wave of nationwide appreciation for Nelson’s home grown style. The bright lights of network TV also shed much deserved light on her band, New England’s “best kept secret” Dwight & Nicole, helping the group to shatter through the glass ceiling that most self-promoting indie artists are up against today.
