Danielle Nicole is one of the brightest rising stars of the blues. She sings with soulful chops. She writes songs ath are smart and emotional about love and life. She plays bass in her trio with guitarist Brandon Miller and her brother, drummer Chris Schnebelen. “Hot Spell,” one of the songs on her newest album, Cry No More, is a first recording of a song by legendary songwriter Bill Withers. She sang (and told the story of) that song and played several of her own songs when she came to The Blues Break on WBGO.
