Michael Kiwanuka

With his impossibly smooth, soulful voice and that tender guitar playing, Michael Kiwanuka's beautiful music deserves your attention.  His debut EP 'Tell Me A Tale' was positively bursting at the seams with a full, warming instrumentation, and Kiwanuka's vocals are deeply rich and soothing.  His second EP, 'I'm Getting Ready' is out on September 18th on Communion Records, and - judging by the acoustic live session embedded above - it's going to be pretty wonderful.

And, I won't lie, it makes it all just a little bit cooler that he recorded a lot of his music here on the Isle of Wight.

You can (and should) buy the 'Tell Me A Tale EP' from here.
