Leon Bridges Biography - Retro Soul Making a Comeback
Drawn to the old time soft soul of the '50s and '60s, this aspiring artist found inspiration after first hearing Sam Cooke's 'A Change is Gonna Come' when watching Spike Lee's Malcolm X biopic. His curiosity got the better of him, resulting in hours spent scouring the internet for footage of classic blues, jazz and soul performances. Dressing in the style of his idols from a half a century past, their influences are reflected in his music too, which resuscitates the old sound for a new audience. In 2014, the singer was washing pots in a local Texan restaurant before he discovered a genre that inspired him to write. Such was his fascination that he attempted to replicate the sound, debuting his material at open mic nights. When Austin Jenkins of White Denim happened to catch his performance, Bridges finally found the opportunity to record the tracks in a studio environment. Within a few short months, over 40 labels were fighting it out for his signature.
After agreeing a deal with Columbia Records, he released 'Coming Home', a track that pays homage to the warmth and purity of soul. Released in February 2015, the track went viral on Spotify, with fans and fellow musicians raving about the vocally accomplished Texan and his distinctive retro style. His first LP was even more popular still, landing in the top ten of both the US and UK charts, and it wasn't long before he was selling out venues both at home and across the pond. With singles like 'Smooth Sailin'' showing his considerable craft as a songwriter, be sure to catch your chance to hear his remarkable voice live when lands in the UK in April - get your Leon Bridges tickets on StubHub UK now.
