Tanika Charles
Tanika Charles
"[T]he most buzzed-about soul singer in Toronto." -CBC Music

In five short years Tanika Charles has transformed from an emerging solo artist to a commanding performer and band leader, a staple of the Canadian festival scene. Both on stage and off, Edmonton-raised Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities. Her art is inherently autobiographical. If Tanika's singing it, she's lived it.

With 2016 comes the release of Tanika Charles' long-anticipated debut LP, Soul Run. The album's first single and title track, a tale of withered romance and high octane escape, has already found its way into national radio rotation. Production work on the album is handled by Slakah the Beatchild (Glenn Lewis, Melanie Durrant), Daniel Lee (Hooded Fang, Phedre), Emdee and 2nd Son (allie), Christopher Sandes (The Big Sound), and Big Tweeze (Theo 3, Adam Bomb). The overarching sound is classic soul and heavy drums, without the need for retro crutches.

"The passion, heartache and hell fury of a woman scorned are captured with crystal clarity and conviction…" -Now Magazine

When not in the studio working on Soul Run, Tanika has been lighting up stages near and far. Backed by her band The Wonderfuls, they played festivals like NXNE, Pop Montreal, CBC Music Fest, TD Toronto Jazz Fest, the AGO Massive Party, the Pan Am Games, and many more. On stage she has sang alongside the likes of Emmanuel Jal, Fred Penner, Donna Grantis, Zaki Ibrahim, Bedouin Soundclash, and others.

Tanika has also appeared on television both as a reoccurring guest on CBC Kids, and as a lounge singer on Global TV's Bomb Girls drama series. Her music has also been featured on HBO's Less Than Kind, ABC's Rookie Blue, and CTV's Saving Hope.

"You can't keep the soul of Toronto down." -Exclaim! Magazine
