Leon Bridges – Lisa Sawyer

In 2012, a yet-unknown Leon Bridges wrote a song dedicated to his mother, Lisa Sawyer. Sam Cooke could have written the same music and lyrics in late Fifties and we wouldn’t have noticed any difference. Same vibe, same sound, same heart.

Lisa Sawyer will be included in Leon’s debut LP, recorded with Austin Jenkins and Josh Block of White Denim in Fort Worth, Texas. The release is expected for late Summer through Columbia. Listen below.
