I discovered Michael on YouTube, whilst watching a video of another artist an advert for his new EP popped up. I was blown away the first moment I watched the video to his song "Tell Me A Tale". I couldn't quite believe what I was hearing; very rich, gritty sounding vocals from a young male Soul singer. His voice is very similar to the likes of Bill Withers, and Al Green - but truly distinctive. His music really makes you feel. This EP is very retro sounding, and you can tell he has been inspired by the artsits I named above. Michael Kiwanuka is one to watch for 2011.
