Leon Bridges

Coming Home


In Stock - Ready to Ship

Leon Bridges serves plenty of nostalgia on his debut album Coming Home. These arrangements ooze classic soul , reminiscent of Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. Highlights include "River", "Coming Home" and "Twistin' & Groovin'".

When Leon Bridges sings, he often raises his arms in a chest-opening gesture that might resolve in a benediction or a finger snap. Like the music the 25-year-old Fort Worth soul sensation has carefully crafted for his debut album Coming Home, his signature move seems simple, but hold many meanings. It recalls the stance Bridges' stated role model Sam Cooke frequently took, including his pose on the cover of the 1963 album the younger singer admits is his template for live performance.

Leon Bridges wraps his creamy-gritty vocals around memories of Cooke, early Marvin Gaye and gospel groups like the Valentinos, as Jenkins and Block do their own creative dance with the legacies of producers like Bumps Blackwell and Smokey Robinson.
