Video: British artist Michael Kiwanuka "I'm Getting Ready"
British artist Michael Kiwanuka was born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants. Michael's '60s soul and introspective lyrics draw comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye.
The LA Times deemed Michael "underrated," noting: "What grabs you first is that voice, a delicately sandpapered, yearning instrument that recalls Bill Withers over a shuffling, breezy funk rhythm. Once the Afrobeat horns and "What's Going On?"-era strings come in, you're hooked and ready to hear more."
