Even before his debut album Coming Home hit the music scene earlier this year, Leon Bridges was one to watch out for. He started out by performing at open-mic nights around his home town of Fort Worth, Texas, and since being discovered by White Denims' Austin Jenkins and Josh Block, after they bonded over vintage clothing one night at a bar, Bridges has been on a continuous whirlwind of success. Often compared to the King of Soul himself, Sam Cooke, Rolling Stone likens Bridge's smooth, retro voice to 'the best kind of nostalgic trip'.
His music evokes the passion and pain of the Fifties and Sixties, transporting his listeners to a time of raw rhythm and blues through his undeniable talent. Bridges is simultaneously an old soul within a breath of fresh air and one not to miss.
