This guy is bananas. Sounding like a cross between Bill Withers and Terry Callier, Michael Kiwanuka will be opening up for Adele on her U.S. tour. The North London singer-songwriter of Ugandan heritage is a diamond, with vocals that warm your earbuds and subsequently send chills up and down your whole body.
Above is an acoustic video for "I'm Getting Ready," which was released a couple weeks ago and it's beautifully soothing. And below, you must absolutely check out the immaculately produced, richly sung instant classic "Tell Me A Tale" (we hear a little Marvin in there).
The I'm Getting Ready EP will be available September 18th. Yes, please.
