Soul Run

A 2 track funk single (6m 58s) — released February 10th 2017 on Record Kicks

Record Kicks proudly pres. "The most buzzed-about Soul singer in Toronto (CBC Music)" Tanika Charles. "Soul Run"produced by Slakah The Beatchild (BBE records) - best known for his works with Canadian rapper Drake, is Tanika's new single and anticipates the self titled debut album that will be released on Record Kicks on April the 7th.

In a few short years, Tanika Charles has transformed from an emerging solo artist to a commanding performer and bandleader, a staple in the Canadian soul scene, both on stage and off. Edmonton raised Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities. If Tanika's singing it, she's lived it!

Her touring career has seen her supporting the likes of Estelle, Mayer Hawthorne, Haitus Kayote, Lauryn Hill, Bendouin Soundclash and Macy Gray. Highly impressive, considering she is only just releasing her debut album to the world.

Soul Run is heavy with heartbreak and heat, from a woman who has been wronged and has a lot to say about it, on the streets of Toronto - National Post

Soul Run presents the world on her terms, with Charles's voice as commanding and honest as Sharon Jones in her delivery of lyrics drawn from her life story, while the likes of Daniel Lee (Hooded Fang, Phedre) and Slakah the Beatchild inject a little boom-bap hip-hop flavour into her deliciously retro soul and R&B instrumentals. - Exclaim Magazine

“Charles imbues the universal themes of relationships with wholly emotive singing, layered vocal arrangements and pinpoint lyrical dexterity.” - CBC Music
