Countdown to Bonnaroo: 20 Days – Artist of the Day: Charles Bradley

17 May

Yesterday it was about one of the next great soul singers and today it’s about a seasoned vet just being discovered and unleashed to the world, “The Screaming Eagle of Soul,” Mr. Charles Bradley.  Last year he dropped No Time For Dreaming, an album that drew national acclaim and it was well warranted. Having moonlighted as a James Brown impersonator, Bradley has soul in his veins and has made a name for himself after years of being, well, undiscovered.  Performing under his name and the moniker, “Black Velvet,” Bradley should bring a little funk to the party in Tennessee this summer.  Another artist festival goers should be excited to check out.  Viva Bonnaroo!!
