Michael Kiwanuka is #1 for BBC’s Sound of 2012

For those not aware, BBC highlights the most promising new music with “Sound Of 2012“.
All this week Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1 has been counting down the Top 5 acts.
Surprised that the winner goes to a British artist, since the four other artist were non-British.

The winner for this year’s Sound of 2012 goes to a North London folksy soul singer Michael Kiwanuka.
Taken from Wikipedia.
His music has been described “Like a lazy autumn Sunday afternoon Kiwanuka’s music is full of laid back, effortless beauty and deserves to be cherished“.
I think he is the male version of Adele.
Debut album Home Again will drop on March 23, 2012.
Here is the music video for Home Again.

Listen to Tell Me A Tale.
