About Michael Kiwanuka

Michael Kiwanuka is a British musician of Ugandan heritage who writes songs combining soul and rootsy folk influences and sings them with a deep, husky soulful voice. The Home Again Songfacts says that after signing with Communion Records, Kiwanuka recorded his debut EP, Tell Me A Tale, with the help of Paul Butler from The Bees, who took the Muswell Hill, London native to his Isle of Wight studio to record the songs.

LMFM Says: 
Being compared to classic artists such as Bill Withers and Otis Redding is never a bad thing, it's just Michael Kiwanuka's voice is so spectacular that he doesn't need such plaudits to succeed. There is a glorious tinge of the classic soul days in every track on Kiwanuka's debut album 'Home Again', from the hazy vocals to the flaring saxophones. 2012 WILL be huge for this guy.
