Hailing from Fort Worth, TX, Leon Bridges propelled himself from the stock rooms and soapy sinks of Texas restaurants, through crowds of cloudy open mic nights and eventually, landed on a record deal with Columbia Records. Sounds like a well seasoned story from the “old days” right? Well, while it carries an old timey charm, Leon Bridges’s story is actually one of current events.
Which is, Leon Bridges, in a nutshell.
Humble in his ways, Mr. Bridges pays homage to the soulful trail blazers who preceded him. "I'm not saying I can hold a candle to any soul musician from the '50s and '60s," Bridges says, "but I want to carry the torch."
See, Mr. Bridges is a young singer with a rich and charming old soul. His fervent vocal stylings are driven by carefully curated vintage instruments and equipment. As he croons through big chrome microphones, girls doo whop in the background and somehow, despite this decidedly classic flavor, it doesn’t feel like we've been here before.
Leon Bridges's sound is fresh and filled with life.
So get out your soft shoes, grab your baby and slow dance to this vintage soul.
