DESCRIPTION

"Charles Bradley’s story was one of hope. He spent his life working a series of odd jobs, trying to get a band together, and literally hitchhiking around the U.S. for a period, before he was “discovered” in the early ’00s working as a James Brown impersonator by Daptone founder Bosco Mann. Bosco Mann and Bradley recorded many singles and three LPs from 2002 until 2017, when Bradley died from stomach cancer at the age of 68. He was proof that it was never too late to live the best version of your life, that the breakthrough you need could be around the corner. Anything was possible for anyone, if you got the right last chance. Bradley was a can’t-miss festival act for the last years of his life, which he never could have imagined when he was sleeping on train cars as a teenager.
