The Dynamites & Charles Walker
The Dynamites emerged in the late '00's as an explosive Soul/R&B outfit fronted by true veteran soul singer, Charles Walker. Since then, the act has engaged in a furor of worldwide touring and released two full-length records. This year, Charles & The Dynamites release their third album, due April 2 on Gemco Records, titled 'Love Is Only Everything.' The new album charts many new and exciting directions for the group, and it includes a duet with Charles' longtime friend and colleague, Bettye LaVette. Charles spent his early days opening for James Brown, Jackie Wilson, and Etta James to name a few; and recorded for a slew of classic soul labels including Chess, Champion, & Decca. His staggering longevity as a performer, which somehow strengthens rather than weakens his vocal abilities, finds an exhilarating platform in front of The Dynamites, whose "main goal is to put up soul to make you whole."
