From the mean streets of New York City, Charles Bradley defied all odds to become an international success – he transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs – most famously as a James Brown impersonator at Brooklyn clubs – before finally being discovered by Daptone Records.
Aged sixty-two he released his debut album that changed the face of soul. Charles Bradley sings with everything he’s got, overflowing with love and gratitude for his fans and his success. He’s here to bring you the love and show what soul can really be.
