Michael Kiwanuka

20.7.2013 >> LP48!

(UK) Englannin tuorein soul-tähti mainitsee innoittajikseen mm. Otis Reddingin, Bill Withersin, Bob Dylanin, Joni Mitchellin, Richie Havensin ja The Bandin, mutta hänen lempeän folkahtava pop-soulinsa ei ole retroa, vaan selkeästi tämän päivän musiikkia. Vasta 24-vuotiaan laulajan viime vuonna julkaistu debyyttialbumi Home Again nousi top-10:iin Englannin, Ranskan, Hollannin ja Belgian ohella Skandinavian maissa ja viihtyi muuallakin top-40:ssä. Kiwanukan ugandalaiset vanhemmat pakenivat Idi Aminin hirmuhallintoa Britanniaan. Kiwanuka syntyi Pohjois-Lontoon Muswell Hillissä ja esiintyi jo kouluaikoinaan monissa konserteissa, lähinnä basistina ja jazz-kitaristina. Westminsterin Yliopiston median, taiteen ja designin laitoksella opiskelut Michael toimi jonkin aikaa studiokitaristinakin ennen kuin alkoi laulaa omia laulujaan. Yleisön ja median kiinnostus heräsi heti 2011 julkaistuilla EP:illä Tell Me a Tale ja I’m Getting Ready. Kiwanuka voitti BBC:n ”Sound of 2012”-äänestyksen ja on albuminsa jälkeen tehnyt ulkomaankiertueita Japania myöten.
