Soul Run

It is hard to believe that Soul Run is Tanika Charles's debut full-length record. Over the past several years, Charles has become a a staple of the Canadian music festival scene, performing at North by Northeast, Pop Montreal, TD Toronto Jazz Fest as well as our very own CBC Music Festival. Check out Tanika Live at CBC Music.

Don't

What kind of posters did you put up in your room when you were younger? It could have been posters of different movies you liked, artists you admired and of course celebrity crushes who you dreamed would spot you one day in the crowd and realize that you were the one they had been waiting for. They adorned your walls, your lockers and your notebooks. I recently learned that today’s teenagers aren’t big on posters. Apparently they’ve replaced them with screen-savers, avatars, Tumblr pages and desktop wallpaper. I guess it’s more environmentally friendly, but still seems a little half-hearted if you ask me. 23-year old Bryson Tiller is the rising star of the trapsoul sound and there are countless Tumblr pages dedicated to him created by the thousands of teenage fans apparently daydreaming over him. Here he is with his hit single “Don’t.” (The song contains strong language)
