What We Listened to this Week: Leon Bridges

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2015 at 11:35 AM

Leon Bridges might say he's from Fort Worth, Texas, but one listen to his debut album Coming Home and you'd swear Bridges was a product of Memphis and Stax Records. Coming Home, his debut album for Columbia Records, is made up of ten timeless songs that feature an authenticity that can be hard to find in the soul revival that's taken place over the last few years. Sitting somewhere in between Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, Bridges has seen his music take flight over the past year, selling out shows across the United States minutes after tickets go on sale. One can only hope a Memphis date is in the near future. Check out two songs from his debut album below, plus a pretty cool Sam Cooke cover.
