There's a guy in youtube that does all kinds of bizzare mash ups I could hear this with smoke on the water ... I reckon it would work ... can't remember the guys name who does the mashups but I really think the two would gel in a weird way

Leon Bridges makes proper art, but damn man, if that was the first I see of him, I would've probably lost interest.

What a breath of fresh air. Leon Bridges and Bon Iver are probably the most important artists in modern music. Bringing the wall of sound back in modern form.

Can't believe I roamed the halls of of the rural town of Crowley High School the same time with this guy. I was a sophomore and he was a senior at the time.

Leon Bridges, you make people believe that there is still some style and class in the music industry! What a great song and performance. I just love your style! Keep doing what you're doing, it's a wonderful, wonderful reprieve from the lazy garbage that is put out these days.

Very talented band he has.... actually appear to be real musicians. His vocals sound rather weak here compared to his recordings

Such a great throwback. Young Sam Cooke. Maybe not quite the pipes of Sam (not a knock by any means, but he has the showmanship down.

Why can't "SNL" play music like this each and every episode? Their "musical" guest is usually shit.

Nice. Something different from today's usual. Definitely reminiscent of the great Sam Cooke.

+nizbt Rodriguez He seems deeply influenced by the greatest American gospel/soul singer of all time. [Brother Ray, Solomon Burke right on Cooke's heals, and in certain instances a giant step ahead - and very very honorable mention to staggering brilliance of Jackie Wilson. Obviously, there's also a few others, Aretha goes w/o saying, but lists & comparisons are never much fun. Still, truth is truth.] Anyhow, that can only be good, and he sounds good. "There are singers, then there's Sam Cooke. Most singers go back to pumpin' gas." -Kieth Richards
