Impressive vocal qualities, winningly honest lyrics, and a contemporary twist on classic soul sounds all point to great things in 2017 for Edmonton-raised Tanika Charles. Today, she has unveiled the title track from her keenly awaited album Soul Run, which only adds to the weight of expectation on this talented artist’s shoulders.
A beautifully told tale of heading out on the run to escape an abusive relationship, the song purrs with quality production courtesy of Slakah the Beatchild (Drake collaborator/producer), Matt "Emdee" Reid, and 2nd Son, coupled with a sparky, powerful narrative lyric. Already a stalwart of the Canadian soul scene, this single and the forthcoming release of her album on April 7th via Record Kicks lead into a busily exciting year ahead.
