Charles Bradley was an American funk/soul/R&B singer, signed to the Daptone Records label under the Dunham records division. His performances and recording style were consistent with Daptone's revivalist approach, celebrating the feel of funk and soul music from the 1960s and 1970s. One review stated that Bradley 'echoes the evocative delivery of Otis Redding.

Charles Bradley’s remarkable, against-all-odds rise was well-documented; how he transcended a bleak life on the streets and struggled through a series of ill-fitting jobs – most famously as a James Brown impersonator at Brooklyn clubs – before finally being discovered.

He passed away from cancer in August 2017.
