Leon Bridges - Better Man
26 year-old Leon is from Fort Worth in Texas. He played locally at open mic nights and a coffee shop while working as a dishwasher until he signed a record deal last year. America’s Wall Street Journal newspaper described him as a "throwback to ’60s-soul a la Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. Leon only began making music three years ago, teaching himself to play guitar while writing his very first songs and he’s been working on completing a number of tracks that will make his debut album titled ‘Coming Home’. He describes the album as including a couple of ballads as well as some rock ’n ’roll tunes. At the start of the year Leon was named as one of the acts to watch in 2015.
