Leon Bridges premieres documentary ‘This Is Home’ on his website

You might recall three months ago, during the Grammys, a Squarespace commercial featuring Leon Bridges (and glimpses of Fort Worth) was shown during the national television broadcast.

Earlier today, a documentary, directed by acclaimed photographer Danny Clinch and tied to those Squarespace ads, premiered on Bridges’ website.

Titled This Is Home, it runs about 22 minutes, features interviews with several familiar faces — Jeff Dazey, Andrew Skates, Rambo, and his mother, Lisa Sawyer, among others — and retraces Bridges’ rise from hopeful singer-songwriter to Grammy-nominated phenomenon. (It is worth watching purely to see the moment where Bridges and his mother have a small dance party while listening to Coming Home.)
