Nuela Charles: Artist You Should Know

Written by

KCRW DJ Chris Douridas has been spinning a singer named Nuela Charles, whose soulful vocals catch my ear every time he plays it.

I finally had to ask him, who is this artist??

Turns out, she’s based in Edmonton, Alberta and identifies as a  “Canadian, Swiss and Kenyan singer-songwriter”, calling all the countries home.

Chris says she reminds him of “what Etta James must have been like.”

It’s a powerful track.

The song “Unfortunate Love” (Feat. Darren Frank) is from her 2012 album “Aware” and it’s a stunner. More to come from this promising new artist.
