Amoeba Hollywood - August 25th @ 5:00pm
Charles Bradley plays a live set and signs copies of his DVD and CD!
Charles Bradley: Soul of America DVD (out now from Daptone Records) takes you behind the scenes in the months leading up to the release of his debut album No Time for Dreaming and shows you where his journey began. Features interviews with Gabriel Roth and Thomas Brenneck. Directed by Poull Brien.
Charles Bradley’s voice has evolved from a lifetime of paying dues, having nomadically labored for decades at various day jobs from Maine to Alaska – singing and performing in his spare time – before re-settling in his hometown Brooklyn and eventually finding a musical home at Dunham. In his distinctively rough-hewn timbre one hears the unmistakable voice of experience – each note and gruff inflection a reflection of his extended, sometimes rocky, personal path. It’s only fitting that producer, Brenneck (also a member of The Dap-Kings and The Budos Band), would recognize in Bradley a kindred musical spirit – a singer whose performances exude both raw power and poignant beauty.
The brainchild of guitarist/producer Thomas “Tommy TNT” Brenneck, Dunham’s indelibly atmospheric sound is epitomized by its flagship artist, Menahan Street Band.
Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires perform at FYF Fest on August 24th.
