After a weekend listening to obscure soul artists from the 60’s and 70’s, I came across a young man who specializes in the sound, Leon Bridges. At the age of 25 he harkens back to the days of love declarations and nostalgia. His debut album “Coming Home” is going to be released in a few weeks and he has already been getting attention for his music.
The eponymous single from the album is an exceptional love song that has Bridges declaring his affection for his girlfriend. His voice completely evokes Sam Cooke’s powerful vocals. In the music video Bridges gets a fresh haircut and spends quality time with his girlfriend; all shot in black and white. Check it out above.
