The river of soul music flows on deep and strong within Leon Bridges, and the Texas native brought that incredible energy to the stage last night at the Agganis Arena, playing songs from his 2018 release Good Thing, along with hits from his 2015 breakout Coming Home. "I'm not saying I can hold a candle to any soul musician from the '50s and '60s," Bridges says, "but I want to carry the torch."
Bridges' light is burning bright, and with a nuanced style and range that serves as a welcome addition to today's musical landscape, the singer/songwriter has proven himself more than worthy of the task. We couldn't have asked for a better night of music.
