Artist to Watch: Charlotte Day Wilson

Unless you're living under a rock, you know that Toronto's hip-hop scene has undergone a major refresh and global gear-up in the past few years. And, while our indie-rock, pop and electro acts have had their successes as well - the past six months have raised increasingly more conversation around the city's burgeoning R&B presence and its underground players, who are bonding together to create some of the genre's sultriest sounds.

Take Charlotte Day Wilson - a young Toronto singer who fronted local group the WAYO before recently stepping away to produce and record her own solo material. On her debut single "After All," which premiered on Rookie Mag, Day's barely-there vocals slink around a breezy keyboard melody and beat, reminiscent of that Sade-perfected, neo-soul groove. In all of her sonic and vocal subtleties, Day Wilson's music is powerful and self-assured - making her maybe one of the most intriguing young artists in Toronto right now.

Have a listen to "After All" below.
