Charles Edward Bradley (November 5, 1948 – September 23, 2017) was an American 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 said he "echoes the evocative delivery of Otis Redding".
In 1996, Bradley's mother called him and asked him to move back in with her in Brooklyn so she could get to know him.It was there he began making a living moonlighting as a James Brown impersonator in local clubs under the name "Black Velvet.Bradley died of stomach cancer in Brooklyn, New York, at the age of 68. He was surrounded by family and friends, including members of all the bands he worked closely with, according to a press release from his publicist
