World Cafe Playlist for 08/06/2021

Leon Bridges joins host Raina Douris

A studio in Los Angeles called Gold Giggers Sound became a refuge for Leon Bridges during the pandemic – And it inspired his latest album of the same name. Gold Diggers is where Leon was able to catch up with himself after a whirlwind few years of increasing fame, including recently being named the 2021 Texas State Musician. On the next World Cafe, he’ll join host Raina Douris to talk about his music, his hometown of Fort Worth, and being an introvert.
