Vintage Texan soul singer and guitarist Leon Bridges has had a busy week in London. After performing a sold-out show at The Lexington followed by a visit to the BBC’s famous Maida Vale studios to record a session for Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Leon yesterday dropped a retro-feel black and white video for one of his most popular songs ‘Coming Home’ (which currently has over a million plays on Soundcloud). The video’s scenery lives up to Leon’s 50’s reminiscent style (which his instagram account is well-know for championing) with images of oldschool American movie-houses, wandering guitar players, a classic barber shop scene and vintage pick-up trucks which very much compliment Leon’s emotive soul sound. To add to the excitement, Leon has announced that he will be playing a surprise FREE show at Shoreditch’s historic venue The Old Blue Last alongside Nottingham singer-songwriter Ady Suleiman tomorrow evening , with doors opening at 8pm. Make sure you get down early to guarantee entry as it’s being run on a first come first serve basis!
Watch the new video for “Coming Home” above.
