Charles Bradley - Victim of Love

Soul icon Charles Bradley is returning to the spotlight this spring with his new album and supporting tour.  Victim of Love, the second chapter in the soul saga of Charles Bradley was released April 2, 2013 on Dunham Records.  For those who fell in love with the soulful, sultry voice of Charles Bradley after No Time for Dreaming, you're in for a treat with Victim of Love.  

The pain, the hurt, the love, the attitude, all the things that make Charles Bradley who he is are all back in full force on Victim of Love.  That amazing combination of The Menehan Street Band backing up Charles Bradley is such a rare combination of musicianship and vocals.  If ever there was a match made in heaven when it comes to producers and frontmen, Tommy Brenneck and Charles Bradley are it.

I remember the first time I saw Charles Bradley perform I saw him open for Sharon Jones in Buffalo, NY in 2011.  He absolutely stole the show.  He came out in a 3-piece red velvet suit and lit up the stage.  The crowd went absolutely wild, and he soaked up every bit of it.  Knowing the story of how he struggled for years in soul obscurity, dealing with all kinds of trials and tribulations, I could see how much he was loving performing as the star he was born to be.

Be a part of the next chapter in Charles Bradley's incredible story.  Catch the documentary about his life, and definitely see him live when he comes to a town near you.
