RIP - Charles Bradley


1948-2017



Charles Bradley's remarkable, against-all-odds rise has been well-documented -- how 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's Gabe Roth. The year following the release of his first album "No Time For Dreaming" was one triumph after another: a stunning performance at South By Southwest that earned unanimous raves; similarly-gripping appearances at Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Newport Folk Festival and Outside Lands
