E023 - Tanika Charles (R&B/Soul Artist)


The music of Toronto R&B and Soul singer-songwriter Tanika Charles blends the classic sound of Motown greats with contemporary hip hop beats.

Hot off the release of her Polaris Prize and Juno Award-nominated debut record, Soul Run, she is currently on tour playing to packed shows across Europe.

We recently talked to Tanika before the tour about graduating from  backup vocalist to solo artist, the international success of her latest record, and that time when she spotted Prince at a New York nightclub.
