Hailing from Fort Worth Texas, Leon Bridges has broken onto the music scene with a handful of essential-when-you-hear-them soul and R&B. His voice is reminiscent–both smooth and deep–as “Dock of the Bay”-era Otis Redding and “Chain Gang”-era Sam Cooke. He made the WXPN The Key’s February 9th edition “Gotta Hear Song of the Week.” In looking up his bio he is a mystery. He has a website, Soundcloud, and Facebook page. Obviously he feels content to speak through his music, which is extraordinary.
Here he is performing live at Little Rock’s White Water Tavern.
