Charles Bradley Booking Agency Profile

Book Charles Bradley for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Charles Bradley was raised in Brooklyn, New York. He lived most of his childhood on the streets, but was able to take away one good memory, which was when his sister took him to see James Brown at The Apollo. Brown's performance left a strong impression on Bradley and inspired him to get off of the streets and become something greater. Charles learned how to cook when he lived in Maine and spent over twenty years in California making a living as a chef. He played music on the side, but did not have an organized or regular band. Years later, after he had moved back to Brooklyn after being losing his job, Gabriel Roth of Daptone Records stumbled upon Bradley playing in a lounge and immediately saw his raw talent. Roth took Charles into the Daptone House of Soul" Studios for a session. Shortly after, Bradley wrote numerous songs and they chose ten of those songs to be released as his debut album, titled No Time For Dreaming. A couple years later, he released another album, Victim of Love. Since then, his songs have frequently been sampled by hip hop artists, such as Jay-Z and Asher Roth. Bradley also provided the singing voice of Krampus in an episode of the adult animated series, American Dad. A live performance of his also appears in an episode of the Amazon television show Alpha House..
