The British musician become one of the most talked-about names in the music circles, and he is about to give music lovers an evening to remember with the fresh breath he brings to retro pop and soul music.
Michael Kiwanuka took an interest in music when he started to listen to Radiohead and Nirvana as a young child. His solo career started in 2011 with Tell Me A Tale EP. His second EP I’m Getting Ready was picked as number 1 EP in BBC’s Sound of 2012. He followed previous years’ Jessie J, Florence + the Machine and Ellie Goulding as the top pick.
He made an agreement with the legendary British recording label Polypro in 2011 and released his first album Home Again in 2012. His audience grew even bigger after he released Love & Hate in 2016. He worked with Grammy-winner producer Danger Mouse, who has worked with Jay-Z, Gorillaz and Beck, and proved with “Love&Hate”, “Cold Little Heart” and “Black Man In A White World” that he has a talent way beyond his age for vocals and writing lyrics. He is already being compared to great musicians such as Marvin Gay, Curtis Mayfield, Terry Callier and Van Morrison. Michael Kiwanuka’s concert tickets are currently on sale.
