Danielle Nicole Schnebelen began singing publicly with her parents’ bands as a youth, and music took hold of her full time in her early 20s. “My father really loved the blues,” Danielle says. “He’d go to all the true blues guys that were around in KC, specifically Little Hatch. He’d played for Abb Locke (saxophonist for Muddy Waters) and we’d get brought along sometimes. The pure, raw emotion relayed through the blues was what really drew me to it. Its history is the foundation of American Music and is THE one that must be respected and not buried as myth or legend.” Danielle plays the bass as well as singing; she was the first woman ever nominated as bass instrumentalist at the Blues Music Awards, and she went on to win the award four times. With veteran bluesmen Brandon Miller (guitar) and Go-Go Ray (percussion) backing her up, Danielle Nicole brings a show drenched in heavy blues.
