Leon Bridges is an R&B/soul singer outta Fort Worth, Texas. Not too long ago, he released a music video for “River“, a song off his “Coming Home” album, which echoes the heartbeat of yesterday’s soul music.  


“Bridges’ music will give you the chills, like Sam Cooke’s or Otis Redding’s soothing sound.”

“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.”

iTunes Review

“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.”
