Leon Bridges southern charms Vancouver: Photo highlights

Photography by Craig Fleisch

Dressed to impress Leon Bridges played to a sold-out crowd at the Commodore Ballroom. Bridges's style is soul, reminiscent of the 1960's musical era of rhythm and blues. He and his band hail all the way from Texas and they came to please.

Only twenty-five years old, Bridges recently released his d├ębut album 'Coming Home'.

With not even a year into his musical career, Bridges's fans seemed to know the words to most of his songs. He and his band just ooze soul wrenching blues that will make you want to get down and boogie.

If you missed his show, don't worry he'll be back early next year to play the Orpheum (March 15, 2016). Tickets are available now through ticketmaster.
