Home Again

Few records make such an instant impression as Home Again, the debut album by Michael Kiwanuka. Immersing the listener in a sound
that is both modern and at the same time as familiar as the classics, it manages to strike the balance between being contemporary and
somehow utterly timeless
On the evidence of the stunning Home Again, of course, Kiwanuka is clearly not a musician who should be wrestling with doubts. It is an
album that is set to make the liquid-voiced singer an international name and touchits listeners in the same way as his favourite records
inspired Michael Kiwanuka himself.
“I'd just like for the songs to mean something in people's lives,” he concludes. “That for me is what music ultimately is for. All of our favourite
records, you can remember where you were when you first heard them. Or they might remind you of a time or someone. My hope is that
these songs will movepeople.”

Performer Notes
  • Home Again is the debut album from Michael Kiwanuka, winner of the BBC Sound of 2012 poll. Ironically, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist's warm and intimate folk-soul sound resembles one of the early- to mid-'70s, as his composition style -- paired with Paul Butler's throwback production approach -- evokes comparisons to classic recordings by the likes of Bill Withers, the Band, Van Morrison, and Terry Callier.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.76) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Steeped in the unplugged soul vibe of Terry Callier, Van Morrison and the music Otis Redding didn't live to make....Michael Kiwanuka is a former London session guitarist who flashes a gentle spirit..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "[The album] blends warm vintage soul with the cozy acoustic vibe of West London's pub scene." -- Grade: B+

Billboard (p.52) - "Though his handsomely rough-edged voice sets you up for a set of mellow ruminations on love, the album ends up veering off in far trippier directions..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.80) - "[An] arresting, if low-key debut that confirms its creator's rapid ascent....This pensive debut gives notice of a fine new talent."
