The debut full-length album from Fort Worth, Texas, native Leon Bridges

Produced by Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of White Denim

Awarded the prestigious 2015 Grulke Prize for Developing U.S. Act

“This kind of perfection is always relevant.” — NPR Music

 “His as-yet-untitled debut album ... is suddenly one of the year's most anticipated.” — Billboard

Leon Bridges is the "out of almost nowhere" story that only comes along once in a while. Awareness of Leon Bidges and his unique craft continues to grow authentically and consistently.

It was only last summer that Leon was singing open mics in his hometown Fort Worth, TX. One of those open mics was attended by Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of the notable indie band White Denim who were absolutely floored by Leon's voice, songs, and creative vision.

They soon after set-up shop in a makeshift studio and recorded the album's opener "Coming Home" completely live to tape. This first take is exactly what you hear opening the album. The remaining 9 songs followed in a burst of creativity and inspiration.

Great Soul Debut

Reviewer: audiofan
It's amusing to see this listed as an "alternative" music selection; this is mid-60s soul all the way, like Sam & Otis used to make. The vinyl is quite well-done - there were no noise problems or defects with my copy. The mix is (purposefully) reminiscent of the era mined by the music - it has one foot in the past (and I mean that in a positive way) but manages to sound both dynamic and 'analog' at the same time. A great new artist and a very decent pressing!
