Leon Bridges is a Texas-born R&B/soul singer. His music will give you the chills, like Sam Cooke’s or Otis Redding’s soothing sound; and the music video for ‘River’, a song off Bridges’ debut album ‘Coming Home‘, echoes the heartbeat of yesterday’s soul music.
“I’m not saying I can hold a candle to any soul musician from the ’50s and ’60s, but I want to carry the torch.”
“Leon Bridges’ retro-soul debut is so impressively dead-on you might wonder where he parked his time machine. Channeling the buttoned-up charm of Sam Cooke and the mellower side of Otis Redding (as well as contemporary throwbacks like Raphael Saadiq), Coming Home captures a moment in the early ’60s when gospel met blues and blossomed into soul. It was the period-perfect title track that helped Bridges gain an audience beyond his Texas hometown, but the swaying dedication to his mother, “Lisa Sawyer,” is every bit as lovely.”
