#WHO: Leon Bridges is a singer-songwriter with a classic sound so powerful it will send you back about 50 years
#WHY:His sound is just dripping with gospel and blues roots, and he presents a refreshing perspective to the muddy R&B genre. It also helps that he’s so adorable, like that cute guy in school that was so ready to woo you with love poems instead of just asking for yo’ number. He gives us hope that there are a few talented musicians out there willing to dig up their roots.
#WHAT’SNEW: Leon has just released his debut album entitled “Coming Home” featuring singles “Coming Home” and “Better Man.” He is also headlining his own North American tour this summer, beginning in October in New Orleans, LA.
