Serene UK soul man Michael Kiwanuka discusses his Adele support, being named as BBC’s Sound of 2012, and getting John Mayer’s endorsement.

Kiwanuka has the zen bearing of a true soul singer, a voice reminiscent of Otis Redding, and a horde of supporters, from Adele to John Mayer to Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys to UK rappers to the BBC, who named him the Sound Of 2012 ahead of Skrillex, Frank Ocean and Azalea Banks.

The humble singer discusses all of the above, plus recording on the Isle Of Wight (and at Kinks frontman Ray Davies’ studio), pepping his songs up for the stage, and who he’s looking forward to seeing at Splendour In The Grass.
