Black Man in a White World (video)
When I saw Michael Kiwanuka on Jools Holland ‘Later’ he knocked me sideways, and now I see he’s coming to the Wylam Brewery in Newcastle on 8th October.
Watch this space for the album review!
London born singer Michael Kiwanuka is pleased to unveil the second song from his forthcoming second album, Love & Hate.
Originally lacking the confidence to sing his own songs, it was upon the discovery of Bob Dylan and Otis Redding, particularly their phrasing, that spoke to Michael above and beyond anything else he’d previously heard. It led him to the back catalogues of Terry Callier and more recently Laura Marling, and his own work followed soon afterwards.
