Rising Artist Spotlight: Leon Bridges

Our Rising Artist Spotlight this week shines on an artist from the U.S.A.! It’s hard to believe that not long ago Leon Bridges was washing dishes at a restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas. Now he’s the next best thing in music.

We couldn’t believe our ears the first time we heard “Coming Home”. You know how sometimes you don’t realize you’re missing something until it whacks you over the head? Well, that’s how we feel about Bridges and that 1960s-inspired soul he’s crafting. Reminiscent of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, he has renewed our faith in music by bringing back soul in all of its magical glory and hopefully sparking a much-needed musical revolution in the process.

We cannot say enough about this fresh, new rising artist, and we’re curious to see if others follow suit. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below!
