As one of the past decade’s breakout stars, Leon Bridges’ music seems to be opening up like an exotic flower. From neon-lit neo soul to rustic folk balladry, his honeyed voice hovers over it all like a familiar companion. As his musical horizon stretches, so does his intensity and activism: his song ‘Sweeter’ is a response to the ongoing police brutality against black communities, bringing the political and personal together in arresting fashion.

On June 10-11-12 2022, Leon Bridges plays Best Kept Secret.
