Nuela Charles – Long Way Down 
Nuela Charles - Long Way Down

Release Date: Out Now

Canadian singer Nuela Charles might well have come up with one of my favourite tracks of the year so far. ‘Long Way Down’ has the blues at its heart, Charles’ voice is full of dusky soul and the music has the class of bigger, more established song. We’re talking about the stadium filling power of Adele, the sultry tones of Nina Simone and the infectious melodies of Paloma Faith all wrapped up in a song that sounds like the Black Keys where involved in the production. The only artist currently coming close to this are emerging British band Bang Bang Romeo and there are three of them. Bravo, Neula. Much more of this please. Great video too, by the way.
