New soul with a old voice or a new voice with an old soul, Michael Kiwanuka is a modern-day Bill Withers.
‘Home Again’ has been part of his live set since early summer. It’s acoustic soul with hints of grandiose, rolling with folk guitar, loose dusty beats and some choice cello.
“So I close my eyes and the tears will clear, and I’ll fear no fear”, Michael Kiwanuka’s croon is touching with a retro-flavour. His voice is one of the most distinctive of 2011; his Home Again EP will be released January 1st, 2012 (via Communion / Polydor Records) – a smooth way to sing in the New Year.
