Leon Bridges – “River”
“Leon Bridges’ retro-soul debut is so impressively dead-on you might wonder where he parked his time machine. He channels the buttoned-up charm of Sam Cooke, 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.” – iTunes
‘River’ is featured on Leon Bridges’ “Coming Home” album, which echoes the heartbeat of yesterday’s soul music.

“I’m not saying I can hold a candle to any soul musician from the ’50s and ’60s, but I want to carry the torch.”
