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. Channeling 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.

Soulful old school style beautifully done

I heard his song River on Big Little Lies on HBO. I looked him up on iTunes and love the whole album. Happy to have found a new artist with a classic sound. Bought the record/LP as well.

Riveting

Absolutely phenomenal. Bridges creates a bright, jazzed picture of the fifties with every note he sings.
