Charles Bradley @ Forecastle 7.15.12
August 1st, 2012 by Matt
I didn’t remember who Charles Bradley was until he took the stage. I recognized his laid back style from the cover of his new album No Time For Dreaming. Having seen Lee Fields at SXSW, I was ready for another dose of vintage soul from the guys who’ve been doing it longer than anyone else. Bradley was a comparable performer to Fields; they both really sell their performance with a lot of passion rather than a lot of energy. Plus it helps to have a great backing bad. After my time in the photo pit was over, I went to the press area and listened to the rest of Charles Bradley’s set. I wish we had a musician like this in Lexington; I’d go see him play every weekend.
