Leon Bridges

Leon Bridges didn’t lived a day in the 1960s. He’s only 29. It’s clear, though, that his sounds are in and of that era — full-on soul nostalgia, with chords and crooning that consistently draw comparisons to Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. Those refreshingly old-school vibes found on his first album, 2015’s “Coming Home,” earned him a Grammy nod for Best R&B Album and later catapulted him to household name-level, with hits on 2015 drama film “Concussion” and  HBO series “Big Little Lies.” But, it seems, he’s had it with the comparisons. As he told Esquire magazine last year, “I’m more than retro soul music.” In 2018, the Fort Worth native dropped his second studio album, “Good Thing,” in which Bridges toys with more contemporary moments. With soul ever the foundation, Bridges’ sophomore project boasts a gutsier sound, but one “Coming Home” fans can still sway their hips to. UK pop singer Jess Glynn, widely known for her feature on Cambridge dance outfit Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be,” joins Bridges for this tour. Tickets, $35-$70, are available at waltonartscenter.org/amp.
