Signed to Daptone Records, the home of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley is a soul act you need to watch. He released his impressive debut album No Time for Dreaming just last week, and its lead single is irresistible. Even better is the fact you can download the track all for the price of an email address. He’s got a fantastic voice, one of the best I’ve heard in a long time, which makes the album stand out above the usual tones of the “retro-soul movement”. The fact that he’s 62 years old and this is his debut release makes it all the more special.
