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.
If you like what you hear because you aren’t dead inside, you can:
You can also catch his performance at AT&T’s All Access Tent at Outside Lands, plus a brief interview, on U-Verse.

Mai Le of Fashionist is my long-time friend and show buddy; this is our second year at Outside Lands together. This year she took some style shots for us. You can find Part 1 of our Outside Lands fashion series here.
Hannah and Jen. Jen made her skirt and earrings at TechShop San Francisco. Hannah wears her bracelets and jewelry every day; they’re gifts from friends.

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.
Outside Lands starts today! YUS, son. I added twenty new tracks to the Outside Lands Playlist, to satisfy my inner completist. I’ll be there with my show buddy Mai today and through the weekend, so please say hi if you see us.
