Wendy Jane’s Weekend Sounds: Leon Bridges – Lisa Sawyer

24 Jan

Leon Bridges

Leon Bridges

I have my friend, Keith Thompson, to thank for this weekend’s pick. It’s the lovely, Leon Bridges, with Lisa Sawyer, a song about his mother’s religious conversion.

Bridges, 26, who hails from Fort Worth, Texas, is a soul singer who brings us back in time to the 1960’s. Reminding one of singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, he even dresses like he stepped out of that time period, but Leon Bridges definitely has a voice of his own that is current, dreamy, and oh so true.

 

Not much more to say, except welcome to dreamland.

      Hi Sherry,

      I’m glad to see that you are feeling well enough to make it to the computer. Thanks so much for listening and sharing how you like Leon Bridge’s sound, too. But, now you’re making me feel old saying how well we remember those times in the 60’s.:)

      Thanks again–hope you are feeling much better now,

      Wendy Jane
