  • R.I.P. Charles Bradley

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Charles Bradley", his publicist said in a statement. While no cause of death was given, Bradley recently canceled the entirety of his tour earlier this month after discovering that his cancer spread to his liver.

Born in Gainesville, Fla., in 1948, Bradley moved throughout his life, spending time in New York, Maine, Alaska and the Bay Area, before returning to Brooklyn for the last two decades, where the world finally took notice of his musical talent at the age of 62, when he released his critically acclaimed debut album, 2011's No Time For Dreaming.

Like his labelmate Sharon Jones who also passed away past year from cancer, Bradley found late life success, after signing to Daptone Records and releasing his debut album No Time for Dreaming in 2011 at the age of 62. Calling himself "Black Velvet", he developed a James Brown impersonation act that he called "Black Velvet", which eventually got the attention of Daptones founder Gabriel Roth. His most recent album, Changes, saw release in 2016 and featured a soulful rendition of Black Sabbath's 1972 song as its titular track. The 2012 documentary "Charles Bradley: Soul of America", documented the creative journey of "No Time For Dreaming". He even spent time as a James Brown impersonator. See you on the other side.
