Leon Bridges’ 1st strides like a retro-soul designer prompted evaluations to R&B legends like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. A vocalist, songwriter, and guitarist, Bridges performed around Fort Well worth, Tx and stirred up music market curiosity with analog recordings, made by Justin Stop and Austin Jenkins of White colored Denim, that have been published to his SoundCloud web page. Authorized to major-label Columbia, his 1st singles — including a wealthy ballad discussed his mom — made an appearance in Feb 2015 having a audio that evoked middle- to past due-’60s soul. The next month, Bridges captured more attention having a performance in the South by Southwest Festival, approximately 200 kilometers south of his house foundation. His debut recording, Coming Home, premiered in June 2015.
