Coming Home

I don’t listen to a lot of new music. Once a week, however I will check the new music section of Google Play Music just to see if anyone I like has released something new. I’ll skim past the Kanye’s and Beyonce’s of the world, and once in a while land on something different from what we may hear played during the Superbowl Halftime Show. This week it was the Soul/Gospel/R&B debut album, Coming Home by Leon Bridges. Judging solely by the cover, I would have guessed this would be something reminiscent of the soul music of the early – mid 60’s that my mother introduced me to years ago. The first, and title track Coming Home immediately confirmed my assumptions. What we have here is a collection of beautifully written and performed songs by a man clearly influenced by Sam Cooke, and other soul singers of the era. A quick Google search also confirmed that he has a fantastic sense of style. Click the album cover above to listen.
