10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Leon Bridges’ retro-soul debut is so impressively dead-on you might wonder where he parked his time machine. Channelling the buttoned-up charm of Sam Cooke and the mellower side of Otis Redding (as well as contemporary throwbacks like Raphael Saadiq), Coming Home captures a moment in the early ’60s when gospel met blues and blossomed into soul. It was the period-perfect title track that helped Bridges gain an audience beyond his Texas hometown, but the swaying dedication to his mother, “Lisa Sawyer”, is every bit as lovely.

Pure, Yearning and Alive

He has such a soulful voice, which takes you back to the greats; Sam Cooke, Etta James; Al Green. It's great to see the 60s soul music make a comeback with such brilliant talent from Leon Bridges.

High expectations

From what I have heard from Leon Bridges so far he is definitely a talented musician. I'm really looking forward to the full release. Hopefully he has an amazing year and I'm looking out for tour dates too.

Leon Bridges = Excellance.

I can't stop playing this album, it's brilliant. He's got a superb soulful voice just like the legends of days gone by. Great music, I really hope he gets all the recognition he deserves. If you like classic Soul/R&B you will love this.
