Dwight & Nicole Bio

Dwight & Nicole (Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson) are a breath of gritty, soulful and rollicking fresh air. Having already performed all over the world with such a variety of legendary artists as Dr. John, Carly Simon, Buddy Guy, and Dr. Maya Angelou, they have the ability to bring a very big presence to any stage, big or small. Both were born with mountains of musical talent including golden pipes that have been honed to fill rock clubs like NYC's Mercury Lounge as well as pin-drop theatres like Boston's Symphony Hall. Dwight & Nicole are a raw and beautiful sight to be seen, as well as a sound to be heard. Ritcher, a multi-instrumentalist, tastefully plays a Gibson Flying V guitar at most shows, running bass lines and finger-picking. When the mood strikes he plays crushing solos, reminiscent of Albert King in their grit and strength. Often, if the music calls for it, he sits at a piano or even behind a drum kit, adding to the texture of their set. Occasionally, Nelson, who builds rhythm by stomping, clapping and playing tambourine, will strap on the guitar, or sit at a piano; further revealing their versatility. With a string of sold out shows, and multiple local awards and nominations under their belt, it is just a matter of time before the rest of the nation catches on to what we in the Northeast have been saying all along. Blending deep rooted blues, soul, folk, and rock, Dwight & Nicole conjure old souls with their brand new classic sound.
