Charlie Brown performs “Dependency” at ILuvLive (Video)

Dope singer-songwriter Charlie Browne has been on the circuit for a lil’ while now (working with Wiley and Bless Beats on single “The Rain” and going through a couple of name changes), but having spent some time away from the spotlight crafting his material and recording for his album, this might just be his time.

I first heard of Charlie when I saw him at ILuvLive back in 2009, and it was this very song that really caught my attention. I’m always impressed by someone who can craft a great song, especially when they can tackle well-treaded subjects without resorting to bland R&B cliches. Great songs, great voice – I’m not sure why Charlie hasn’t been signed yet, but I’d be surprised if he isn’t snapped up by the end of the year.
