Dwight & Nicole are a refreshingly honest act that moves from R&B to silky soul, with hints of rock, gospel, and swampy blues. The music is diverse, but it all fits seamlessly on this strong new disc. It's a tour de force that demands much wider success. ...poignant...hard driving... and heavenly." Steve Morse, BOSTON GLOBE
Magnificent!" Dr Maya Angelou
