Released October 23, 2012 You take the good with the bad and the bad with the broken,” Nuela Charles sings on “The Good Ones,” a slinky, soulful, electro-pop number peppered with soaring, loosen-your-ponytail horns. You know the feeling you get when you listen to a great album and you want to shout it from the rooftops and let everyone know? “Aware” is precisely that kind of album — a smooth, triumphant, star-in-the-making album of retro soul and R&B with moody trip-hop and electronica, produced by Fred Brenton and Brad Smith. (Think Nelly Furtado in her earlier, earthier days.) There’s nothing bad or broken about this Edmonton artist’s second effort — from the sinister piano, whip-like snaps and stuttery vocals of “Throwdown” to the skip-along, summery vibe of “Take It Or Leave It” to the croony goodness of “Unfortunate Love,” a smouldering piano ’n’ horn duet with Darren Frank. Unfortunate? Only if you don’t let Charles take charge of your stereo/iTunes.” – Sandra Sperounes, Edmonton Journal, Album Review, 4/5 stars ** Nominated for a 2013 Western Canadian Music Award for Urban Recording ******************* BONUS: You Got Me (Jeff Olson Remix) This sampler includes a new Jeff Olson Remix of the track "You Got Me" from the full album "Aware"
