Nicole was a member of Trampled Under Foot with her brothers before going solo in 2015. She’s since released three albums, and her debut, “Wolf Den,” made it to the No. 2 spot of Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart in 2015. “Cry No More” (2018) debuted at No. 1 on that same chart and earned her a Grammy nomination. Hear what all the fuss is about on Friday.
