Tanika Charles & The Wonderfuls | Jul 27 • 8pm
Since emerging on the international scene in 2017 with her debut “Soul Run”, Tanika Charles has revealed herself to be one of the best kept secrets in soul music. Both on and off stage, Toronto-based Charles presents an immutable charm, at times endearingly abrasive and honest in her vulnerabilities.
Charles’ sophomore album “The Gumption” was released in May, continuing her tradition of marrying classic soul with modern production styles. Across a dozen songs, Charles addresses moments of vindication, uncertain love, forbidden fruit and the state of the world today.
“It’s a little more mature,” Charles says about the album. “It’s not feeling guilty about being up front, not being afraid to address situations that aren’t comfortable for me. I’m comfortable in my skin now in a way I never was before.”
Backed by her band The Wonderfuls, Charles has embarked on five tours since the release of “Soul Run”.
