Leon Bridges came onto the music scene when he released two demo songs on Soundcloud in late 2014. “Coming Home” received regular airplay on radio stations ranging from KKXT to London. It and “Lisa Sawyer” received more than 800,000 views and attracted the attention of more than 40 record labels with Bridges eventually signing with Columbia Records in December 2014. Bridges hails from Fort Worth, where he teamed up with members of fellow Texan band White Denim to produce his debut.
