Michael Kiwanuka's leap into the mainstream music is a bit unusual. He released his first album Home Again this past summer, which caught on pretty quickly in his native UK and is spreading around stateside. What's so impressive is that Kiwanuka managed to build an audience as a soul singer, but his sound isn't straight Motown. Between the big horns and swinging beats, he interjects softer, folky-er ballads. You can watch an exclusive KGSR interview with Kiwanuka on our Downtime page and check him out on Saturday at the KGSR live performances at Threadgill's before his appearance at ACL.
