Michael Kiwanuka "Home Again"
North London soul singer Michael Kiwanuka tops this year's BBC Sounds poll--the first male to top the list since Mika in 2007. The subtlety of his soulful sound is reminiscent to American acoustic/soul singer Amos Lee. His debut single "Home Again" showcases Kiwanuka's subtle old fashioned melodic sensibilities, a soft acoustic guitar guitar layered over alleviating percussion, strings and drumming. It's currently #15 on iTunes.
