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.

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!!



CBC Radio 2 Top 100 Songs Includes "Crumbling Down"

"Every year we look back at all the new music played on Radio 2. We make a list, we check it twice, then we crunch some numbers to find out which songs were at the top of their game in 2016. For you math lovers out there, the songs were ranked based on national airplay, digital sales and their peak chart positon on the Radio 2 Top 20. 

Listen to the full countdown on CBC Radio 2 on Monday, Dec. 26 (and again on Monday, Jan. 2) on Radio 2 Morning with Raina Douris at 6 a.m. (6:30 a.m. NT) and Drive with Rich Terfry at 3:30 pm (4 p.m. NT)." ( from CBCMusic.ca )

FYI News: Track of the Day

Nuela Charles - "Fever (Independent) No, this is not a version of the Peggy Lee classic, but is an original track on The Grand Hustle, the just-released second album from this soulful singer/songwriter.

Charles explains that “'Fever' was written out of a moment of frustration, and sometimes out of frustration we run. We run away from something, or we run to something. The video represents us all. With the direction of Steven Hope, we were able to capture a sense of urgency, emotion and togetherness, which I feel like is needed now more than ever. "

The neatly-crafted and well-produced cut strikes us as having real airplay potential.

The Edmonton-based Charles was a 2011 and 2013 Western Canadian Music Award nominee for Urban Recording of the Year. She first made a major mark with 2012 debut album Aware, a disc that found favour with the CBC and earned TV placements on VH1, MTV, Showtime, and more.

Look for her new material to also receive a warm reception. Charles describes The Grand Hustle as "the result of four very transformative years. Through discovery, love, loss, and recovery I have learned to fight for what I want."

Charles plays the Needle Vinyl Tavern in Edmonton on Nov. 26.
