As a Canadian, with Swiss and Kenyan roots, Nuela Charles is a singer-songwriter whose music crosses boundaries and unites musical genres. With a mix of hip-hop, pop, jazz, R&B, and soul interspersed in her music, it’s no doubt Charles has managed to grab national attention. When she released her debut album “Aware” in 2012 it went on to be the inaugural Edmonton Music Prize winner. Since then, she has earned a spot as a Top 12 finalist in Alberta’s Peak Performance Project, and her songs have appeared in several shows on VH1, Family Channel, W Network, City TV, MTV and Showtime. Her most recent album is set to be released this fall.
