Michael Kiwanuka, at Outside Lands 2012

AT&T sponsored my coverage of Outside Lands this year, so I got to take photos of a few of their All Access tent performances.

Michael Kiwanuka was the guy I came to see. I mean, Stevie Wonder aside, but come on.

Kiwanuka is a soul singer who was recently on tour with Adele, and his music has made it onto a few of my mixes. He said he aims for warmth with his albums, and that’s a perfect description of how they make me feel — comforted.

If you haven’t heard him sing, start with Any Day Will Do Fine, and go from there.

You can also catch his performance at AT&T’s All Access Tent at Outside Lands, plus a brief interview, on U-Verse.

    I saw him at a small club in Atlanta a couple of months ago. SO fantastic. His voice is amazing and his smile is one of the warmest smiles I have ever seen. He’s got the goods.

    Just heard him on the radio in the car for the first time. And before I could try to divine the spelling of his last name, I spy your RSS feed on my Netvibes page. Thanks for doing the spelling for me!
