Leon Bridges is a singer/songwriter who became very popular within the last year or two. He is a soul singer but also has a very bluesy sound at times. Leon is very unique, one thing that intrigues me is his love for vintage and some retro techniques. He created an album using all vintage equipment and local singers. Leon's music is very warm and calming. His break came for the song "Coming Home" which he recorded with Columbia record in 2014. His music is timeless and his songs are ones that you could listen to for years on repeat. I enjoy his work because it is from the heart. A lot of music created these days just talk about sex and drugs, where his has deeper more emotional meanings. Leon Bridges is 29 years old and only at the start of his career.
