Leon Bridges Tickets, Tour Dates 2016 & Concerts
Born in July 13 1989, Leon Bridges is an American who has rendered his voice to a wide variety of music from soul to gospel to rhythm and blues. Bridges was born in Atlanta, Georgia but raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Initially, the guitar was his vehicle in songwriting.
Noted for what many called a retro style coupled with silky-smooth vocals, Bridges would perform on a regular basis at open-mic events around Fort Worth while working as a dish washer at a local venue. With his growing reputation as a talented singer, Bridges met Austin Jenkins, a White Denim guitarist in early 2014.
Austin would subsequently watch him performing in North Texas. Immediately, they were joined by White Denim drummer Joshua Block in recording and producing Leon’s early songs using an old authentic equipment.
The trio toured New York in support of Sharon Van Etten and performed before they resumed their previous roles in White Denim. Bridges released Coming Home his debut studio album. The album garnered both nostalgic and positive reviews from the critical press.
