Don't miss Dwight & Nicole's hometown return at Arts Riot. Featuring the original soul/ blues stylings of multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter Dwight Ritcher & BMA Female Vocalist of the Year Nicole Nelson
The Burlington VT couple have carved out a nice niche for themselves in the indie-music scene with their uplifting live shows and lush recordings. Nelson, who was recently a finalist on NBC's The Voice, received nationwide accolades with her version of Leonard Cohen's HALLELUJAH which became a hit at #24 on the iTunes pop charts.
Dwight & Nicole, an American roots band formed by recording artists Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson. An inspiring mashup of folk, blues, pop, jazz, gospel and reggae. The album is a culmination of an exciting couple of years that saw Nelson appear on NBC’s hit talent show, The Voice; chart a stirring rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at #24 on iTunes; and win a Boston Music Award for “Female Vocalist of The Year.” The duo’s recent momentum also landed them on Boston Globe’s “25 Most Stylish of the Year” list, found them playing major festivals and performing at storied Fenway Park.
The DuPont Brothers:
Blending the contemplative winters of the northeast with the solitary beauty of southwestern desert, Sam and Zack DuPont are now co-conspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family. This Burlington Vermont made duo has hit the ground running since the formation of the group in March of 2013. The brothers have recently shared the stage with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Ben Sollee, Gin Wigmore, Chris Thomas King, Langhorne Slim, Howie Day and The Lone Bellow to name a few. The sound is Vermont made Folk-Americana.
