Michael Kiwanuka - Debut Single 'Tell Me A Tale'

I've just discovered this North London gem! I don't know how to put into words how great he is so here is an excerpt from his bio "With Michael Kiwanuka, it's all about the voice. A voice that he describes as "hitting straight through to the core" with direct, emotional songs about love, yearning, comfort and belonging. It's a voice that built him a following via MySpace and small London gigs, and led Paul Butler from The Bees to invite him to the band's Isle of Wight studio to lay down these introductory tracks. Which makes it all the more strange, really, that what Kiwanuka originally set out to be was a session guitarist who maybe wrote the odd song for other people."


I guess you could say he is England's younger less lived-through-absolutely-everything answer to America's Charles Bradley!
