FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Concord Records is proud to announce that Danielle Nicole’s Cry No Morehas won Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 2018 Blues Blast Awards.

Released on February 23, 2018, the fast-rising singer-bassist-songwriter’s new album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Blues Chart, hit #7 on Billboard’s Top New Artists/Heatseekers chart and reached #9 on the Americana/Folk Albums Chart. Cry No More takes the former Trampled Under Foot member into fresh creative territory, delivering 14 emotion-charged new songs whose rootsy, musical edge is matched by their air of hard-won personal experience. Danielle’s new recording is also the subject of critical praise:

“…it is Withers’ spirit seeping through ‘Hot Spell’ that marks the most compelling contribution to Nicole’s best work to date.”

– NPR Music

“Blues and soul vocalists tend to improve as they age. Bettye LaVette is among the artists who became increasingly believable as she matured. Danielle Nicole Schnebelen appears to be following in her footsteps.”

– Kansas City Star

“Danielle Nicole’s expansive approach yields deeply compelling musical results throughout Cry No More.”

BassPlayer

“…a talented songwriter…and Nicole knows how to record a cover song, particularly the seductive ‘Hot Spell.’” ****

DownBeat

Cry No More illustrates that Danielle Nicole’s songwriting and singing continue to develop stronger by the album. She knows how to rock, she can turn in a soulful ballad that breaks hearts, and she can sing a jazz line that puts her in the company of Nina Simone.”

Living Blues

“As Trampled Under Foot’s longtime bassist, Danielle Nicole won respect and admiration throughout the American blues scene for her soulful, inventive playing, and tireless work ethic. That admiration has only grown since Nicole struck out on her own, and started up her own band.”

– Guitar World

“Nicole brings it, bakes it, and serves it up blazing on a silver soul-rocking platter.”
