As a child in Brooklyn, Charles Perry split his time between singing in six different church choirs and swiping CDs from local chain stores to feed his fascination with soul legends like Sam Cooke and Nina Simone. On his upcoming debut album, the singer/songwriter, nicknamed the Soul Superhero, uses those musical roots as the foundation for a brash and dazzling soul/pop/R&B hybrid he?s conceptualized as ?the love child of James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Rick James, Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, and Randy Newman.? Featuring fiercely powerful vocals honed in part by singing backup for the likes of Michael Jackson, tracks such as the beat-driven and sweetly heartfelt debut single ?Stranger to Love? show Perry instilling his outsized passion into throwback soul and delivering what he calls ?old-school wisdom for a new-school truth.?
