Show Description

Drawing comparisons to Susan Tedeschi and Etta James, Danielle delivers a

sweeping vocal range and powerful telling of her lyrics every time she hits the stage.

Artist Bio

Founding member, lead singer, and bass player of Kansas City blues-rock band

Trampled Under Foot, Danielle Nicole stepped out on her own in 2015 with her debut

album “Wolf Den.” In 2018, Nicole returns with a follow-up release via Concord

Records.

"I grew up playing the blues, and the blues is still a big part of what I do. But now I'm

reaching out more and trying different things. It still sounds like me, but I'm stretching

out a lot more than I have previously."

Nicole's distinctive, inventive bass work—which resulted in her becoming the first

woman to win the Blues Foundation's 2014 Blues Music Award for Best

Instrumentalist, Bass—is the product of years of intensive roadwork. Although she had

no experience with the instrument when she became Trampled Under Foot's bassist,

now she can't imagine life without it.

"When I started doing my solo thing," she continues, "someone asked me if I was

gonna hire a bass player. No, of course not! I originally picked up the bass to keep Trampled Under Foot a family band, but I really fell in love with it. It was a huge challenge, and it still is. But I really love being part of the groove and getting to sing on top of that. I had learned some stuff on acoustic guitar before I started playing bass, but I never really felt connected to it the way I do with the bass. It's empowering, walking onto a stage full of grown men who can play their asses off, and it's 'OK, I’m gonna play this bass, we're gonna do this, and it's gonna rock.’"

Rounding out her band are longtime Danielle Nicole Band guitarist and

multi-instrumentalist Brandon Miller, and Ralph Forrest on drums.

"I think that it's a good time for the kind of thing I'm doing," she states. "From my

years of playing blues festivals, I've seen that younger and younger audiences are

getting into the blues. I think that people want to hear authentic music again."
