Michael Kiwanuka gained widespread critical acclaim with his debut album, 2012’s Home Again and in the same year won the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll. Although he owns a unique and distinctively soulful contemporary voice, comparisons to artists like Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding illustrate its strength, power and quality.
Finally returning in 2016 with a second record it has turned out to be an explosive year for Michael. What he eventually delivered was one of the most expansive albums of the year, and one that should surely stand the test of time. Love + Hate reached No. 1 in the album charts, was nominated for this year’s Mercury Music Prize and deservedly earned Michael nominations for the BRIT's, Q, MOBO and NME Awards. His spring 2017 tour has completely sold out and this autumn UK tour is his most extensive to date and destined to go the same way.
