Nuela Charles’ mix of pop, jazz, R&B, hip-hop, and soul is in a league of its own. Based in our dear city of Edmonton, Nuela has a way of bringing warmth to a chilly November afternoon. Nuela has been nominated three times for the Western Canadian Music Award for Urban Recording of the Year, in 2011, 2013 and 2017. And in 2017 took home the Western Canadian Music Award for Urban Artist of the Year.
Nuela released her first album Awake in 2012 and her follow up The Grand Hustle in 2016. Nuela’s catchy rhythms and soulful voice have gained her popularity in Edmonton, the U.S., and Europe. Nuela’s music has been featured in many TV shows and films in Canada and the U.S.
Nuela is a true Edmontonian. She has seen great success here and feels no need to leave. We respect and support that here at BRR and want to see more artist staying in Edmonton. Even though she travels in support of her music she always finds her way back. We are very glad to have Nuela joining us on the Panel and to have her as an honorary member of Bent River.
