Channel 2 were a brother & sister R&B duo from Oakland, California that consisted of Carl and Trish Nickolas. Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to Wing Records. In 1988, they released their debut album, “Slammin’ at Eleven.” It’s unknown how or if the album ever charted.

The first single from the album “In Debt To You” peaked at #55 on Billboard’s Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 12 weeks.

The follow-up single, “Keep it Simple” peaked at #64 on Billboard’s Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 8 weeks.

After that, it seemed as if Channel 2 have faded into obscurity. It’s unknown what the Nickolas siblings are up to these days.
