Born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants, Michael Kiwanuka's '60s soul and introspective lyrics are drawing comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye. He topped the BBC Sounds of 2012 list, joining the ranks of previous winners including Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae, Ellie Goulding, and others. His effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice can be heard on his EPs Tell Me A Tale, I'm Getting Ready, as well as the Home Again EP and forthcoming LP of the same name.
