Summertime Soul by Charles Walker Band - "In the Sun" [Official Music Video]

This is "In the Sun," the Charles Walker Band's third music video. This song was written for lead singer Porsche Carmon by Charles because his favorite time to see her is summer, when the sun glows off her skin. This video was shot at Bradford Beach in Milwaukee, WI over a series of three days. After the first two days of shooting, the band was run off by the police from 3 different locations but eventually found their final area to shoot in without harassment.

Grounded in blues, the band refined their unique sound into what can best be described as soul, a fusion of funk, r&b and Motown. Though compared to an array of musicians (Sly and the Family Stone, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, George Clinton and Parliment Funkadelics, James Brown), their music retains deep gospel influences and positive lyrical messages.
