CMW Showcase Review by The Revue

Major thanks to The Revue for stopping by my Canadian Music Week showcase last Thursday and for your kind words.

At this point, a quick trip was made to check out Nuela Charles at The Painted Lady, another artist that The Revue previewed before the festival. The venue is a smaller, more intimate venue, and it suited NUELA’S IMPRESSIVE SOUL-TINGED VOCALS perfectly. IT WAS PALPABLE AMONG THE CROWD THAT WE WERE EXPERIENCING SOMETHING SPECIAL. This is definitely an artist to watch.

FEATURE: New Moons (UK)

In life, you will occasionally come across those rare individuals who posses a genuine and unmanufactured air of mystery and intrigue. These people are often completely oblivious to their own intrigue. Such is Nuela Charles, an alternative soul artist based in Alberta, Canada, who undoubtably belongs to that exclusive group of genuinely interesting individuals (something I don’t believe she would ever admit herself). Having just released her latest album ‘The Grand Hustle‘, a culmination of several very transformative years in her life, Nuela is converting fans one listener at a time. I spoke to the soul-inspired songstress about music, family, and self discovery.

ESPN: MUSIC for JANUARY 2017

I've always loved the montages that would play on ESPN, where the editors would take exciting clips and piece them together with a great piece of music.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I found out that THREE of my songs, [ "Evolution," "Coming For You," and "Fever" ] were chosen to be a part of their music "pool" for January 2017. What this means is that for the whole month my songs,  among others, will be available for unlimited use. I've already seen it used twice, once for an NBA piece and once for an NFL piece, and I nearly lost my shit.

Couldn't have ask for a better way to start 2017!!

xoxo
