Tour Preview: Leon Bridges and his Good Thing Tour!

Getting good and plenty soul with Leon Bridges and his Good Thing Tour!

If you like R&B with a classic feel then Leon Bridges is an artist you should always keep in rotation. Listening to him reminds me of driving around D.C. with my parents, listening to the Oldies/R&B station while they reminisced and told me how “they don’t make music like this anymore!” A valid complaint that is true, those classics will always speak to those times.

Leon and his style are a throwback to another era my parents loved and loved. Even his appearance is vintage, in line with the growing men’s fashion of combining vintage 1950s pieces for a sleek, less casual look. It’s a vibe that walk the line between classic R&B and country, making him stands out as a different type of singer during a time where artists are less likely to be described solely in one genre of music.

His first single “Coming Home,” off the same-titled debut album on Columbia Records, was everywhere it felt like. Yet not many R&B fans really knew who he was. I’d bring up his name to friends and get a “Who?” Even though they would recognize the song when I played it. There was a disconnect somewhere. I think with his sophomore album, those of us he didn’t reach on first go round can gladly play catch up. The love song “Beyond,” is a favorite of mine off the May 4th released Good Thing. With lyrics like “I’m scared to death that she might be it /That the love is real, that the shoe might fit/,” it’s going to become a wedding favorite, I’m telling you.

 

This album has a more modern feel but don’t go thinking Usher, even though he is one of Leon’s inspirations. I think Leon will always keep on old school feel to his music regardless, and it’s not a bad thing. NC will get a chance to sample his goodness live when his tour stops in Raleigh, NC at the Redhat Amphitheater on August 27th. You can still get your tickets here and check out the rest of the tour dates below to see when he’ll be in a city near you!
