Danielle Nicole – The Love You Bleed

Danielle Nicole - The Love You Bleed

Danielle Nicole is a Grammy nominated, 7 x Blues Music Award winner and one of the finest singers and bassists in roots music today. At the beginning of the ‘The Love You Bleed’ recording sessions; Danielle knew this new album would be different from those in the past. “Maybe that’s because over half the songs are about falling in love and not falling through the destruction of it,” she says. The album, produced by Tony Braunagel (Taj Mahal, Eric Burdon, Robert Cray) and mixed by John Porter (B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Bryan Ferry), is full of love, loss, will, determination, and all the other things that go together with love.

Lead single “Make Love” is about consciously pushing past the pain, choosing love, family, and community in life’s difficult moments. “How Did We Get to Goodbye” with its raw and honest lyrics, document a soured love that bears no hero or villain, asking how you get to such a place of disrepair without even knowing it. And “Love On My Brain,” is a potent hybrid of vintage R&B and driving blues. “Right By Your Side” is a vintage soul/R&B ballad about never making the mistake of watching “the one” walk away again.

“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
