Toronto-based singer Tanika Charles has become a staple of the scene both at home and abroad. Her music revels in honesty and attitude. Her live show is high energy and endearing. The 2 time Juno Award nominated and 2 time Polaris Prize long-listed singer continues to win audiences over one stream, one Shazam and one encore at a time.
Backed by her band The Wonderfuls, Tanika has embarked on 5 international tours across 9 countries since releasing Soul Run, including 70+ headlining performances. Together they oscillate between faithful recreations of her studio recordings and cross genre nods to rock, gospel and country influences.
In 2019 she had the honour of being named the inaugural Polaris artist-in-residence for 2020 at the Studio Bell National Music Centre.
