Leon Bridges may be young, at just 27 years old, but he has a classic sound and look that is reminiscent of a different time. He mixes R&B and soul to create a sound that will take you back to the '60s. He released his debut album Coming Home last year on Columbia Records. To stick to the "old" sound, the album was recorded using vintage equipment. The title track was played on radio stations and was even featured on an iPhone commercial. In addition to making his own album, Bridges has also collaborated with many big name artists, like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Check out the video for the song "Coming Home" below.
This Friday, September 30th Leon Bridges will be hitting the stage at The Fillmore in Detroit. Joining him for the evening is Lianne La Havas.
