Voice is the strongest element in music when it comes to R&B. Michael Kiwanuka seems to value this element as he shoots his vocals straight into the hearts of his loyal fan following on MySpace and on the local London scene. Paul Butler, from The Bees, noticed his talent and invited him to the band’s Isle of Wight studio to drop some tracks. It’s funny because Mr. Kiwanuka started as a session guitarist.
London seems to be the breading ground for the newest R&B/Soul talent now a days. They don’t seem to shy away from the genre …embracing it like we did in the 90s. Michael Kiwanuka, the North London native, is carving out his piece and ready to share it with the world. The song “Bones,” is a reflection of his style and tone of the old school. His voice is deep, raw and untamed on this rich track. Check it out!
