EDITORS’ NOTES

Gifted soul singer Danielle Nicole opens her self-titled solo debut with “You Only Need Me When You’re Down,” a fiery blues romp that boasts shades of Bo Diddley’s immortal “Dearest Darling.” It’s one in a small group of promising blues-soul hybrids that the Kansas City native (and former Trampled Under Foot frontwoman) recorded in New Orleans alongside GRAMMY®-winning producer/guitarist Anders Osborne. While “Starvin’ for Love” features an undeniable groove and mesmerizing keyboard work from Mike “Shinetop Jr.” Sedovic, “Didn’t Do You No Good” is at once stormy and sultry, with Nicole's remarkable voice matching the strength of hot-to-the-touch guitar licks.

About Danielle Nicole

Danielle Nicole Schnebelen, who performs solo as Danielle Nicole, is a contemporary blues singer, songwriter, and bass player from Kansas City, Missouri. Raised in a musical family that included her blues musician father, Bob Schnebelen, she began her music career in her early teens, singing at local coffee houses and open mikes. In 2000, while active in various other Kansas City-area bands, she and her brothers, Nick and Kris Schnebelen, formed the soul-blues band Trampled Under Foot. The group went on to release a self-titled album in 2006, followed by 2008's May I Be Excused, 2011's Wrong Side of Blues, two live records, and 2013's Badlands, which won Contemporary Blues Album of the Year at the 2014 Blues Music Awards; Danielle Schnebelen took home the award for Best Instrumentalist: Bass. After signing with Concord Music Group, she released an eponymous debut EP in March 2015. It featured keyboardist Mike "Shinetop" Sedovic, musician/producer Anders Osborne, and drummer Stanton Moore of Galactic. Her first solo full-length, the New Orleans-recorded, soul-bluesy Wolf Den, followed later that year with the same core band. ~ Marcy Donelson
