Leon Bridges is an American soul singer songwriter from Fort Worth Texas. Best known for his song "Coming Home", which got to the top 10 on Spotify.

Bridges began writing and performing a 60s style soul music and playing at open mic nights around Fort Worth. He caught the ear of Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block of the band "White Denim". The two helped him produce a couple tracks he'd been working on. They recorded an album with a vintage type sway.
Bidges recorded two demo songs this including "Coming Home". He got the attention of many record labels, but he decided with Columbia in December 2014.

He began his first national tour in January 2015. Leon landed the cover of Fort Worth magazine and he was also featured in an Apple commercial with "Coming Home". He finished his tour at Shepherd's Bush Empire on September 28.

Leon has such a unique style and voice. A little taste of Otis Redding or maybe Sam Cooke. They say he looks like his music. There aren't a lot of artists like him these days. Leon bridges is bringing something special to the music industry.
