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.

PAPA, at Outside Lands 2012

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

Side venues at festivals are my favorite places to find new music. It’s so nice to see bands up close before a sea of bobbing heads intervenes a few years down the road.

PAPA is a band out of L.A. who describe themselves as American soul music. In addition to being easy on the eyes, they’re smart, so it’s safe to develop a thinking woman’s crush.

These photos are from their performance in AT&T’s All Access tent, and you can see the whole performance, plus a brief interview on U-Verse.
