Charles Bradley & Menahan Street Band – Live From The House Of Soul
The first installment of Daptone Records’ new video series, Live From The House Of Soul. Directed by Poull Brien and shot in the backyard of Daptone’s House of Soul in Bushwick, Brooklyn, features Charles Bradley at his best with the Menahan Street Band.
Charles Bradley’s voice has evolved from a lifetime of paying dues, having nomadically labored for decades at various day jobs from Maine to Alaska – singing and performing in his spare time – before re-settling in his hometown Brooklyn and eventually finding a musical home at Dunham.
In his distinctively rough-hewn timbre one hears the unmistakable voice of experience – each note and gruff inflection a reflection of his extended, sometimes rocky, personal path. It’s only fitting that producer, Brenneck (also a member of The Dap-Kings and The Budos Band), would recognize in Bradley a kindred musical spirit – a singer whose performances exude both raw power and poignant beauty.
