Leon Bridges – Coming Home. Singer/Songwriter Leon Bridges from Fort Worth, Texas has suddenly graced my very ears with his delectable Southern, soulful and tantalizing sound. Bridges takes us back in time with his bluesy soul jams, its hard to believe that they were made in the 21st Century, so reminiscent of Sam Cooke. With vocals of pure perfection, and sensational songwriting from Bridges, depicting this bluesy, pained story, check out “Coming Home” below, which oozes everything soul sensuality, plus his take on Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang” here.
It’s been way too long since we were blown away by someone from around here, but we feel like these brilliant throwback soul jams from Crowley’s Leon Bridges are pretty undeniable. We don’t know much about Bridges at this point, and it’s hard to believe that this kid channeling a young Sam Cooke comes from our own backyard, or anywhere, but we can’t escape the promise of greatness we keep hearing in his timeless songs.
