Nuela Charles has returned with a new single called "Worthy". A staple in the Canadian music scene- she calls Edmonton, Alberta home, but was born in Kenya and raised internationally in Canada, Switzerland and the Bahamas. Known for her soulful vocals and powerful stage presence, she has built a discography of vibrant alternative R&B cuts, and garnered three JUNO nominations in the process. Accompanied by a vivid, engaging new visual, "Worthy" is a testament to her consistency, featuring heartfelt vocals soaring atop infectious, rich grooves.
"Worthy" opens with an addictive, character-rich bass-line that melds with subtle, warm percussion to create an intoxicating groove. Over top, breezy guitars add layers to the production and complement her emotive, uplifting vocal melodies. The song builds engagingly into a powerful chorus as a crisp drums and brisk synths are added, contrasting with the spacier, more laid-back verses. Blissful and freeing, "Worthy" lifts the listener up to the clouds and envelopes them in soothing, warm sonics. The accompanying visual, directed by Kyle Tiernan, utilizes warm, subdued lighting and coloration to a soothing effect, enhancing the song's laid-back, glowing sound.
The latest from Edmonton's Nuela Charles, "Worthy" continues her run of sharply-crafted, soulful alternative R&B offerings, and has us excited for a longer project from the artist.
