“Dwight & Nicole are a tour-de-force that demand much wider success. Poignant, hard driving... and heavenly”
- Steve Morse, Boston Globe
“Give “Wait” a spin and, for at least three minutes and fifty seconds, all will be right with the world”
- Dan Bolles, Seven Days
(review of the single “Wait”)
“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
(live show review)
“Notes of R&B and hip-hop with a smoothness that feels like cruising through the city on a summer night. The band layers on funky elements on guitar and organ, culminating in a mix of vocal harmonies and rich instrumentals that
leave you feeling enchanted.”
(review of the single “Time)
"They’re retro, they’re groovy, they’re good songwriters... soulful, lo-fi sound... thoughtful song-smithing."
"A retro soul band, contemporary blues act, roots rock duo and R&B dynamo all at once... simple, hypnotic... 'The Next Go-Round' works nicely as a calling card for Dwight + Nicole’s sound. It resembles a gospel tune written a century ago and would also fit nicely on Brittany Howard’s 2019 experimental pop album."
"Sometimes everyone disappears and we have to find a way to be alone with ourselves. Dwight + Nicole present this truth in an excellent production that might well be a film short all on its own, with a song that confronts the darkest human truths."
“There are good voices, and then there are GREAT voices; Nicole Nelson is definitely the latter”
- Christina Aguilera
“Dwight + Nicole are powerful! They’re my favorite new band.”
- Mavis Staples
“Dwight + Nicole are absolutely the real deal; they are outstanding singers and songwriters. They are carrying the torch.”
- Melissa Etheridge
