3x JUNO-Award nominated Nuela Charles is an alternative/soul singer songwriter known for her soulful vocals and captivating stage presence,  solidifying herself as a Canadian music staple. Born in Kenya, raised in  

Switzerland, Canada and the Bahamas before settling back in Canada, Charles’  music is infused with her multicultural upbringing, giving a fresh and diverse flare  to her sound.  

Charles’ latest single “Space’’ came out of a writing session with multi-platinum/ diamond record producer Don Mills (Giveon, Snoh Allegra, Juice WRLD, and  more) and was completed by JUNO Award Nominated producer/mixer Ryan  Worsley, who brought life to the track and took it to the next level. The groove laden tune is a lightning bolt, honest response to the notion that you just need  space to salvage the momentary love turmoil. The things we need to do, we don’t  want to do and “Space” narrates just that. Knowing you need space from your  other half but wanting anything but that. Charles shares, “Even though it was  written prior to the pandemic, it kind of fits perfect. We’re all longing for personal  interactions, but for the safety and wellbeing of everyone, we’re told we need to  separate. The one thing no one wants. Space gives you the right to be in your  feelings about it for 3 minutes and 30 secs.”  

“Space” oozes with Charles’ smoky, sexy voice, dripping in soulful flames, the  track is the perfect combination of soul, pop and alternative. Funky bass slaps,  groovy guitar runs, bright, tight drums, sultry synths and rich trumpets that layer  up the frequencies. The production on the track is an amalgamation of polished  yet raw goodness. The catchy hooks and beat are totally engrossing and bold,  accompanied with Charles’ confident vocals the songwriter exclaims, “Space has  kind of turned into what I wish I would’ve said – my alter ego so to speak – that  sassy voice that won’t take no for an answer.”  

Nuela has brought her distinct voice to various stages over the last several years  – having performed notably at Reeperbahn Festival in Germany, making her UK  debut in London, and making her US debut at the uber-coveted “It’s A School  Night” by personal invitation by tastemaker and KCRW radio host Chris Douridas.  Over the last year, Nuela shared the stage as direct support for some of  Canada’s musical icons – including Sam Roberts Band, Jann Arden and Stars.  

With a nod from tastemaker The FADER, placements on the hit shows Jane the  Virgin and Tiny Pretty Things plus some comfortable real estate on the CBC  Music (Radio 2) charts, Charles is ready to release more of her fiery brand of  cinematic soul.
