Danielle Nicole Band

Award-Winning Contemporary Blues Artist Danielle Nicole has been hitting the charts ever since the release of her debut album. Wolf Den reached number 2 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums chart just one month after it was released in September 2015. Nicole’s second release, Cry No More, peaked at number 1, and was nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award in Contemporary Blues. Cry No More went on to earn two Blues Music Awards and three Independent Blues Awards that same year.

Nicole is currently nominated for the 4th time in this year’s Blues Music Awards for the category of Bass Instrumentalist.  “To be recognized for artistry on my instrument, for bass as a woman, is extremely humbling.   I was shocked to find out I was the first woman ever nominated, but I’m glad that the steps are happening and it’s process is becoming more inclusive.”
