Charles Bradley’s story is incredible, but I will leave it to your very capable fingers to Google!
“Strictly Reserved For You” is Bradley’s new single, and being that he’s on Daptone Records, of course his is a classically soul sound, the likes of which we haven’t seen for a while and don’t see these days often anymore. His voice hearkens back to a time when the focus was on the pain and emotion that the soul voice contained. It’s a welcome disruption from the current version of “soul” and R&B which we are served up by Top 40 radio on a daily basis.
Charles Bradley is a seemingly out of place mix of James Brown’s look, an old soul, a hardened life, and yet, an almost pure, youthful vibe as he’s stepping into his own at such a later point in life. He may never sell a million records, but his talent and determination speak for itself. “Strictly Reserved For You” is taken from his latest album Victim Of Love, which is available now. The “Screaming Eagle Of Soul” has earned his moniker no doubt, and I’m curious to hear your thoughts!
