With his heartfelt vocals and boundless charisma, Brooklyn soul singer Charles Bradley was meant for stardom. Without luck, however, talent doesn’t always find the audience it deserves, so it’s fortunate that Daptone cofounder Gabriel Roth encouraged him to hang up the James Brown impersonator cape to strike out on his own. On his new record, Changes, Bradley adapts the Al Green template, R&B warmed with funk and sanctified by gospel, to his unique talents. He also has a way with covers, like Nirvana’s “Stay Away” and Black Sabbath’s “Changes,” where he amplifies the soul buried in the originals. If his late-in-life success seems surprising, Bradley doesn’t take it for granted—he plays every show like it’s an audition that could make or break his career. KATHY FENNESSY
