Editorial Reviews

Leon Bridges is the 'out of almost nowhere' story that only comes along once in a while. Awareness of Leon Bidges and his unique craft continues to grow authentically and consistently.

It was only last summer that Leon was singing open mics in his hometown Fort Worth, TX. One of those open mics was attended by Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of the notable indie band White Denim who were absolutely floored by Leon's voice, songs, and creative vision.

They soon after set-up shop in a makeshift studio and recorded the album's opener "Coming Home" completely live to tape. This first take is exactly what you hear opening the album. The remaining 9 songs followed in a burst of creativity and inspiration.

Leon was the breakout artist of 2015's SXSW, and performed to capacity crowds at A-level events including Heartbreaker at Willie Nelson's ranch, the Gorilla-vs-Bear HypeHotel showcase, Spotify House and Saint David's Church. His soulful, movement based performances and adept backing band garnered strong reviews from a variety of top-level media including the New York Times, Billboard and Grantland amongst many others.

Leon Bridges is 25 and grew up listening to Usher and Ginuwine, but you wouldn't know it listening to his debut "Coming Home" which sounds like it was recorded in the fifties or sixties. His simple organic soul/blues/gospel sound recalls Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke with references to New Orleans and The Mississippi.

Concise at 10 tracks, his smoky world weary vocals shine on every track, from the bluesy title track, the Doo-wop-laced "Better Man" which finds him declaring that he loves her "Better than all those Jezebels lurking under perfumed sheets", while "Brown Skin Girl" is a horn-peppered slowly swinging piece.

Upping the tempo are the bouncy "Smooth Sailin'" and "Flowers", while "Shine" is an organ-driven blues/hymnal ballad. Highlight has got to be the autobiographical "Lisa Sawyer", an ode to his mother set to a strolling pace and soothing harmonies (of "Pa pa doos"). Closing is the acoustic tambourine-garnished gospel-tinged ballad "River" with a lovely bridge which finds him harmonising with some haunting female vocals.

Produced by Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block of indie rock band White Denim, the album was recorded on vintage analogue equipment virtually live. Right from the retro cover art to the throwback sound, this sounds like a lost classic rediscovered. Leon Bridges is the real deal.

Dear Music Appreciators,

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve listened to the new album COMING HOME by Leon Bridges several times now and I’ve come to the following conclusions:

- Leon Bridges is a pretty smooth dude. His vocal phrasings are nicely toasted to the low burning embers of the music - no marshmallows catch fire on this album if you know what I mean, and as the listener I was continually left wanting s’more of Leon's sound. This can be both a good thing and a bad thing - maybe Leon is a little too nicely toasted at times. Maybe it would be nice to hear him really let loose and catch fire - he certainly has the voice for it. Perhaps he lets things hang out a little more in his live shows - some artists are great on record but even better live.

- I like soul. I need more of it in my life and in my music collection. I go through life with a damper on my feelings most of the time and it can be liberating to listen to a honey-throated heartbreaker sing it with feeling (whatever “it” may be). If I was a singer I think I’d want to be the soulful kind who could sing those “Baby, baby, baby’s” and “Whoa girl’s" like Leon, in a way to make the ladies lean forward and listen.

- “Coming Home” is far and away the best song on the album, which is probably why it is the title track and why it was also the demo song that got him significant radio airplay and attention from major labels, leading to a deal with Columbia. Unfortunately “Coming Home” is also the first track on the album, which could make it a downhill trip from there for some listeners. I’m here to tell you to hang in there and keep listening. “Better Man,” “Smooth Sailin’,” "Lisa Sawyer,” “Pull Away,” and “River” are also standout tracks that deserve attention.

The open echo chamber rang me back to late 60's early 70's all on one album.
Leon Bridges took 2015 way back to an more honest time in the mist of cooperate warmongering.
The wondrous lack of auto tune allowed Leon Bridges to take us back to a raw, clean, decent time when one persons voice was the intrinsic value that showed a sold quality that we called music.

Each song was fun and exiting all in one sitting. Leon opened with "Coming home" which hooked me from the start.
Mr Bridges had me imaging dancing with my best girl in a room filled with people and all I saw is her,

Better man, Brown skin girl were a wonderful prelude to Smooth sailing. Those songs put such a smile on my face even though times are hard and getting harder it took me away to a place i needed to be today.

His use of Soulful southern blue with a base from baptist churches rang strong in "Shine" and "Flowers" which if you asked me ended entirely too soon.

I could go on and on however i leave it to you to enjoy this ear pie for your tasting pleasure.

Enjoy

This album brings back everything there was to love about the early days of soul and R&B music. Yes, Leon Bridges is reminiscent of Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and other pioneering soul artists, but he is a unique talent in his own right and this album is anything other than a throwback to an earlier era. Great listening throughout and a strong beginning to what will likely be an amazing career for this young man.

Smooth new sounds, reminiscent of Sam Cooke. Every track a keeper (though I am personally a bit less enamored of the religious overtones of "Shine"). Definite stand out tracks are "Coming Home," "Better Man," and "River." Slide guitar fits in nicely with "Twistin' & Groovin'" while sax helps carry "Smooth Sailin'." All in all a pretty tasty effort at new R&B sounds. Look forward to hearing more.
