In a few short years, Polaris Prize-nominated Tanika Charles has transformed from a promising emerging artist to a commanding performer, and staple of the Canadian soul scene. Charles delivers heart-pounding, modern soul that steers clear of retro clichés. With a million dollar smile and irrefutable charm, the Edmonton-raised singer tackles her autobiographical subjects with aplomb and vulnerability: if Tanika’s singing it, she’s lived it.
