Danielle Nicole is an Internationally recognized, awarded and touring Original Musical Artist as a Singer, Songwriter, Producer and Multi-Instrumentalist hailing from Kansas City, MO. Founding member, lead singer, and bass player of internationally acclaimed Blues/Rock band Trampled Under Foot, Danielle Nicole Schnebelen stepped out on her own in 2015 with debut album “Wolf Den” which gained a lot of steam debuting at #2 on Blues Billboard and earning Nicole a Blues Blast Award for Best New Artist. In 2018, Nicole returned with a follow-up release via Concord Records entitled “Cry No More” debuting at #1 on Billboard, garnering a 2019 Grammy Nomination for Contemporary Blues Album and 2 Blues Music Awards for Bassist and Female Contemporary Artist, among a slew of Blues Blast Music Awards and 3 Independent Blues Awards. Nicole's “distinctive, inventive bass work”—which resulted in her becoming the first female to receive nomination for the Blues Foundation's Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist - Bass—“is the product of years of intensive roadwork; and although her voice draws comparisons to artists such as Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt and Etta James, it is only the feeling in which she will invoke those memories. Nicole’s show, style and tone are all her own and can only be experienced.” Current line-up consists of Co-founding member Brandon Miller on guitar and vocals and World Renowned Drummer Go-Go Ray.
