Mondavi Center Presenting Program


A testament to the power of perseverance, Charles Bradley is a commanding soul artist who gives new meaning to the oft-used phrase “the voice of experience.” Inspired by seeing James Brown live at the Apollo in the 1960s, Bradley spent the next 48 years working day jobs from Maine to Alaska, all while stoking the flame of his unfulfilled music career. Now settled back in his hometown of Brooklyn, Bradley has received glowing reviews for his debut album No Time for Dreaming (at age 62), including a nod among Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Albums of 2011. Each note and gruff inflection is a reflection of his extended, sometimes rocky, personal path. And while his stage presence is profoundly unique, one can still see the traces of a young man, doing his best James Brown moves before the mirror.
