Cited by the U.K.'s Metro publication as "cocked, locked and ready to be shot onto the world stage with a soulful voice that may one day fill the Amy Winehouse-shaped holes in everyone's hearts," Nuela has brought her distinct voice to various stages across North America. Nuela's debut American performance was at the uber-coveted "It's A School Night" showcase in Los Angeles, on the personal invite of Chris Douridas, popular DJ and musical tastemaker at Santa Monica, California's radio station KCRW, after he added Charles' saxy "Unfortunate Love" into rotation.
The lead single "Crumbling Down" from sophomore album "The Grand Hustle," landed Nuela a nod from pop culture staple FADER.com, and spread nationwide as it landed on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20 charts for seven weeks straight. Adding another four (4) TV synchs to her name, notably on ESPN and the CW's hit show "Jane The Virgin," Charles is ready to release more of her fiery brand of cinematic soul.
Nuela's new single "Do It Right" (March 2, 2018) is a snappy, Bob Fosse inspired, head bopper, co-written and produced by Grammy-nominated Rob Kleiner (Andra Day, Sia, Ceelo Green) in Los Angeles, CA.
