Todd Michael "Leon" Bridges is an American gospel and soul singer, songwriter and record producer from Fort Worth, Texas. Bridges writes and performs 1950s and '60s-style soul music that has been described by Austin 360 as "a transmission straight from the heart."
While working at Del Frisco's Grille in Fort Worth,Bridges played countless open-mics before signing to Columbia Records in December 2014. It was his song "Lisa Sawyer", about his mother's conversion, that first defined his style. He began to attract followers, and his break into the music industry has been attributed to meeting guitarist Austin Jenkins and Joshua Block of White Denim.
Leon Bridges' new album Good Thing is out May 4th.
