Aubrey Haddard - Charley

This review was originally published in August of 2018.

I struggle to reference anyone else who sounds this good fronting a three-piece band; I really can't find a reason why Aubrey Haddard doesn't deserve Band of Gypsies type credit at this point. It's a fantastic sound, it's her sound, and she does it with such a skeleton crew. You need to dig pretty far back to find that kind of soul power: until now I thought only someone like Bonnie Raitt can fill space like this.

I don't want to understate: Audrey Haddard is exactly the artist that the world needs right now - driven, authentic, unique, and possessing unquestionable pedigree. Her Tiny Desk entry for this year makes it clear: there is a lot to love. It is Blues, it is Soul, and it is the clear synergy of both a strong writer's point-of-view and a kickass backing band.

Aubrey Haddard is a Blues and Soul artist from New England. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
