Kiwanuka Shines In UK, Set For Mega US Music Tour

illness http://communityvet.net/wp-includes/feed.php geneva; font-size: small;”>Following a short yet successful run in June, http://contentisbae.com/wp-includes/taxonomy.php Michael will be heading out on the road for his first lengthy coast-to-coast US tour. These two New York shows will be Michael’s third and fourth time performing in NY.

The singer is considered one of the most shining internationals stars Uganda is proud of.

Following the triumphant return to NYC, Michael will then play a number of East Coast dates before heading to the West Coast, including a performance on October 9 at the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.

He will be performing songs from his debut album Home Again, which will be released on CD July 17 through Cherrytree Records.

Home Again was produced by Paul Butler from The Bees in his home studio on the Isle of Wight.

The album takes Michael’s effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice and builds them into timeless and rootsy folk-inflected modern soul. Michael and Paul played most of the instruments on the album. Home Again was released in March in the UK to great acclaim, debuting as a Top 5 best seller.

Unlike the UK release, which included ten songs, the US version features 11, with the addition being the Dan Auerbach-produced “Lasan.”

Born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants, Michael’s music is drawing comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye. Earlier this year he topped the BBC Sounds of 2012 list, joining the ranks of previous winners including Adele, Corinne Bailey Rae, 50 Cent, Ellie Goulding, and others.
