Legendary soul singer Charles Bradley AKA “The Screaming Eagle of Soul” won over the GoogaMooga crowds–and this photographer–with his heartfelt songs and undeniable energy.
I’ve read glowing reviews of Charles Bradley’s shows, but this was my first time seeing him live. I have to say that he exceeded my expectations. Even in three songs, it was very clear to me that Charles is the real deal. He pours his heart and soul into his performance. The comparisons to James Brown and Otis Redding are spot-on and well-deserved. The lead image is my favorite shot of the whole festival. Charles was kind enough to let me take a quick portrait with his drummer after their set too.
