Winnipeg. Please meet Toronto (formerly of Edmonton) soul singer Tanika Charles. If you haven't heard me play the titular track to her forthcoming LP Soul Run on TGIFR, here's a second chance to get hip to someone who is bound to be big. Charles has that throwback thing going on but this isn't a facsimile. She's the real deal and that voice of hers is incredible.
The fine folks at Jazz Winnipeg are bringing Charles to town for a special show at The Good Will so take a listen and mark your calendar for May 18th.
