Michael Kiwanuku is a voice of wisdom and a rare talent whose music oozes the kind of soul the world lost the day the Motown movement passed.
Fresh from supporting the world’s number one selling artist on tour, the one and only Adele, this London born and based musician bounded up with guitar in hand, ready for his exclusive i-D Online session with a proper big grin on his pretty face. Michael has every reason to feel upbeat considering the hype and acclaim his smooth and rich sounds have been met with. Keeping himself to himself, preferring to strip his sound down to the raw noise which represents him so perfectly, Michael is cheeky, charming and hugely talented. Think that’s refreshing? Just listen to his cool, honest and affecting live rendition of debut release ‘Tell Me a Tale’ available for download from 13th May on Communion Records. But remember you heard it here first.
