88Nine was one of the first stations in the US to bring you the soulful sounds of Michael Kiwanuka almost a year ago. Now Kiwanuka is one of the most talked about and buzzed artists right now. His unique soulful voice has garnered him praises from all over the world including in his home country of England, where he recently won BBC Sound of 2012.
Kiwanuka's debut release Home Again will be released in couple of weeks, and he will be playing this year's SXSW (I can't wait). If you can't wait for his release, how about checking out this little gem featuring The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach called "Lasan."
