Leon Bridges – Good Thing
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne
Three years ago Leon Bridges conquered the world with his brilliant retro soul/R&B sound: his debut album "Coming Home" received fantastic reviews, placed in the top ten of the British, US and Australian charts, crossed the gold line in his home country and was nominated for two Grammys .
In advance, the 28-year-old Texan now released the first two songs from his upcoming second album "Good Thing" in mid-March: "Bet Ain't Worth The Hand" and "Bad Bad News". The entire longplayer was produced by Grammy nominee Ricky Reed (Jason Derulo, Eli Paperboy Reed etc.) and Leon's longtime studio partner Niles City Sound .
Before Leon Bridges was nominated for two Grammys, played for President Obama at the White House, attended the Met Gala, Leon Brigdes was a dishwasher and tried to gain a foothold in the music scene through open mic nights in his hometown Fort Worth.
The new album shows the now much more experienced musician on his rise from humble beginnings with modest possibilities to the world stage. "Coming Home" was an early black and white masterpiece and "Good Thing" is magnificent Technicolor.
