[Listen] Michael Kiwanuka's Home Again

Michael Kiwanuka hails from London and is rocking this whole Otis Redding, Randy Newman vibe well. He's just 24 and he's more or less a blues and folk superstar overseas. He's currently on tour and coming to the States in June in order to spread his soulful jams further and further. 

Being so young and in the blues game, it's hard to imagine the guy having much success - success comes from hardship and wisdom in that neck of the woods. Kiwanuka's got plenty of both, however. His family escaped the Amin regime in Uganda, finally finding residence in Muswell Hill, London. Since then, Kiwanuka's been pursuing music and making a name for himself. His breakout album debuted in 2011 and it's only been a blur of success after: two EP's, supported Adele on her 2011 tour, signed a record deal, and won BBC's Sound of 2012 contest. Well hot damn, we've got a winner. Hang out this Easter weekend and relax with our personal favorite, Home Again. It's soulful, it's folksy, it's Michael Kiwanuka.
