“Home Again” – Michael Kiwanuka
I think far more likely than recently dubbed Snoop Lion being Bob Marley reincarnated is that Otis Redding’s spirit has been reborn in Michael Kiwanuka. The math even works in this case. Enough silliness though, let’s get down to business.
Kiwanuka’s parents left Uganda under the Amin regime and raised Michael in London where he attended Fortismere School. He then went on to study at the University of Westminster in their School of Media, Arts and Design. Before Communion Records signed him and released his first two EP’s he worked as a session guitarist. He was named the winner of BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll at the beginning of this year.
“Home Again” is simple and beautiful. Kiwanuka’s voice is incredibly soulful and you really feel his emotion behind the words. Simply beautiful. Hope you enjoy.
