Charles Bradley

This soul singer with a heart of gold emerged from a life of odd jobs and a vagabond lifestyle when Daptone records discovered him moonlighting as James Brown under the name "Black Velvet." From there, the label recorded several of his songs, putting out some of them on vinyl and releasing his debut, No Time For Dreaming, in 2011. A documentary about the singer called Soul of America was debuted at SXSW in 2012 and helped spark interest in Bradley, and his sophomore album, Victim of Love, came out in 2013 to a host of critical acclaim. At 55, Bradley continues to tour the nation performing his authentic mixture of blues, funk, and soul.
