Leon Bridges      

Singer-Songwriter Who Blends Soul & Gospel

Leon Bridges is a singer-songwriter and record producer. He signed with Columbia Records to release his 2015 debut studio album "Coming Home," which peaked at number six on the Billboard 200, received platinum certification, and earned a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album. Following "Coming Home," Bridges released "Good Thing" the following year and "Gold-Diggers Sound" in 2021, which both peaked on the Billboard 200 chart at number three and seventeen respectively and saw critical acclaim.

Bridges' style is primarily soul, but with resemblance to the rhythm and blues of the 1960s. He learned to play guitar by playing simple chords to accompany his lyrics. While working at Del Frisco's Grille in Fort Worth, Texas, where he grew up, he played countless open-mics until he was signed by Columbia Records in 2014.
