Charles Bradley - Changes CD
“Bradley sounds vital... the singer remains a precious commodity: the real thing.” - Jay Balfour, Pitchfork
“the music pulses with 2016 energy, achieving an appropriate, and conceptually clever, balance of vintage and modern... thrillingly, undeniably alive.” - Tom Moon, NPR Music First Listen
"Changes features a stunning cover of Black Sabbath’s song of the same name that should convince anyone of the 67-year-old soul singer’s redemptive power." - Andy Beta, Wall Street Journal
Charles Bradley releases new album Changes. It's the 60-something year old's third release since he gave up a lifetime of journeyman-ing to fulfill his dreams of being "The Screaming Eagle of Soul." The entire album features the Menahan Street Band and was produced by Tommy Brenneck. Bradley's remarkable, against-all-odds rise has been well-documented - how he transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs before finally being discovered by Daptone's Gabe Roth. Most artists appreciate their audiences, just as many are grateful for them, but few artists love their fans as much and as sincerely as Charles Bradley.
