Singer/bassist/songwriter Danielle Nicole’s new album Cry No More is a step in a new direction. The 14-song collection is her most personal yet while adding new elements to her style. Of course, the former Trampled Under Foot bassist is still steeped in the blues.
“I’m definitely taking more chances now,” she says. “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. I wanted to open up more about myself, and I think it shows in the songs. I thought really hard about the stories I wanted to tell in these songs. I really dug into my personal experience, and worked to be more open and expose more of myself than I have in the past.”
Alongside her own compositions is a new song called “Hot Spell” by the legendary Bill Withers. Cry No More also has several guest appearances from Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Luther Dickinson, Walter Trout and Sonny Landreth.
