A Year In Review: 2015 Music of the Year
Released June 23, 2015
Hopping out of his time machine, Leon Bridges has taken us back to the 1960's with his debut album Coming Home. The soul singer’s release has been nominated for a 2016 Grammy, "Best R&B album", and for good reason. Indebted to the style and sound of Sam Cooke, Bridges is respectful enough to the greats before him to not completely rip them off. An album filled with passion, old school wisdom, and downright singing introduces genuine talent into a world that may have forgotten what soulful singing actually sounds like. Bridges' voice is soothing and his music is absolutely timeless.
