Michael Kiwanuka :: Tell Me A Tale

I was hipped to Michael Kiwanuka in Paris a couple of weeks back with only the caveat of “you’re going to fucking love this.” It’s true, I do. I’ll spare you the laundry list of influences only to say that it’s about time someone picked up the torch from Terry Callier and Bill Withers. Highly recommended.

  1. WOW! Some voice. I didn’t believe it was coming from him until I just checked out his Black Cab session and was even more amazed. I don’t know what I would do without this site sometimes.

  2. awesome voice!

    and even if berlin is hip at the moment it’s still weird to so my neighborhood in a music video.

  3. This sounds really good. Your right someone does need to pick up the “torch” of Bill Withers/ Terry Callier, I hope to hear more of him in the future

  4. Reminds me of that Willie Wright reissue on Numero. Great stuff, as always.

  5. He’s great! Will play him on my show tomorrow for sure. Such great soul singers breaking the scene at the minute. Thanks for the post

  6. It would be great if I could legally purchase his music. I’m in the US and can’t seem to get around the draconian restrictions from amazon/iTunes. Would love to support this artist, but can’t…and I’m pissed about it.
