Drunken Library’s Album of the Month – August 2015

This August the album to feature is Coming Home by Leon Bridges.
Released just this summer, Coming Home is Bridge’s first full-length release. He hails from the great state of Texas, where he got his start singing soul and gospel music. His retro sound takes you back to the swingin’ age of honest love songs.

His first single release is “Coming Home” which showcases his soft and full voice, romancing you with every beat of percussion and every lyrics of “I need you baby. . .” His songs have a juicy blend of skilled instrumentals intertwined with his groovy vocals.

Listen here:

Our favorite track on the album is “Smooth Sailin” with lyrics like “honey, I won’t wear you down . . .” Bridges assures he likes the way you sail your ship down. See his performance at SXSW 2015 in Texas below. We can’t wait to see where he takes his music next.
