Nicole Nelson: Dwight and Nicole | 7:00pm - 10:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Nicole nelson, The Voice, Dwight and Nicole, AMA, Unity on the River, music, pop- Unity on the River is delighted to welcome Dwight and Nicole for a very special concert on Sat. June 18 at 7pm.
Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Dwight Ritcher along with BMA Female Vocalist of the Year Nicole Nelson make up the critically acclaimed indie-soul band DWIGHT & NICOLE. Their recent single “I Need Love” was named one of the top 100 Songs of the Year by the Boston Herald, and Nelson was coined “The Voice of Vermont" in a cover story printed about her in the Burlington Free Press. She then went on to receive major accolades with her haunting version of Leonard Cohen's “Hallelujah,” which became a nationwide hit at #24 on the iTunes pop charts.
In the summer of 2015, before a pin-drop silent crowd of over 5,000 at Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign kick-off, Nicole sang a gorgeous rendition of “God Bless America.” It was an unforgettable performance that left the crowd completely stunned. 2015 ended on a very high note with a string of sold-out concerts up and down the East Coast; nominations for “Best Vocalist in Vermont,” “Best in State – Vermont,” and “Band of the Year” by the New England Music Awards. In January 2016, DWIGHT & NICOLE spent a magical afternoon at Burlington's Signal Kitchen with friends and fellow VT act Kat Wright & The Indomitable Soul Band to record a historic version of Woody Guthrie's “This Land is Your Land.” In its first week alone it has reached hundreds of thousands of people who have been floored by the unadulterated talent. The heartfelt rendition has garnered nearly 500,000 views online in a matter of just a few days, quickly becoming an exciting break out song for the artists involved, and for the Bernie campaign.
While the duo is already well known in the Northeast, 2016 finds them poised to break nationally with a new album in the works to be recorded in a secluded studio setting, just outside of Burlington. They will be playing live directly to tape, capturing the unique intimacy, serious chops, and raw power that their fans have come to know and love. DWIGHT & NICOLE are a tight-knit band on the brink of major success.
Don't miss a chance to see them live. See what all the talk is about, and go home uplifted and inspired.
