Leon Bridges is nothing if not full of surprises.
Steeped in vintage soul yet blessed with a refreshingly modern approach, the Austin based artist has been working with members of psych collective White Denim.
Placing a handful of rapturously received cuts online, Leon Bridges took his seven piece soul explosion to London's Lexington venue last night (March 2nd) for a brief glimpse of what he is capable of.
Bashful, retiring – shy, almost – Leon Bridges is blessed with a sweet, smooth voice, yet one that also displays no small amount of grit.
Comparisons could be made with Sam Cooke, or even aspects of Little Willie John, but ultimately it's his own character which comes through.
Modest to a fault, the singer gently guides the band through a short set, with highlights including the previously shared 'Better Man' and 'Coming Home'.
Couldn't make it? Well, 'Coming Home' now has some thoughtful, stylish visuals. Shot in timeless monochrome, you can check it out below.
