I recently posted an article about Leon Bridges tour schedule and now this is a post to discuss his release of his first studio album “Coming Home”.
Im slightly biased in loving this album as I’m a sucker for anything that sounds like a 1960’s blues record. His singing style, writing and recording technique all lend a hand in making Leon carry an original sound with a retro influence. Singles from the album (‘Lisa Sawyer’ & ‘Better Man’) received MILLIONS of plays on Spotify and he has gained over 70,000 followers.
I hope that artists like Leon are going to get more commercial success and show that music is still very much alive and kicking and doesn’t need 43 producers to make it sound like a hit. Talent, passion and vision is all it takes!
Check out his album on Spotify below and try not to sway to a single song… I dare you.
