Michael Kiwanuka Plays the Fox Theatre Tonight, 9/30

97.3 KBCO & Z2 Entertainment will present Michael Kiwanuka at the Fox Theatre tonight, September 30th. Tickets are $15.00 in advance & $17 day of show.

With Michael Kiwanuka, it’s all about the voice. A voice that he describes as “hitting straight through to the core with direct, emotional songs about love, yearning, comfort and belonging. It’s a voice that built him a following via MySpace and small London gigs, and led Paul Butler from The Bees to invite him to the band’s Isle of Wight studio to lay down these introductory tracks from what promises to be a major new British singer/songwriter. Which makes it all the more strange, really, that what Michael originally set out to be was a session guitarist who maybe wrote the odd song for other people."

Growing up in North London, he struggled at times to see where he fitted in.  An avid England and Spurs fan, he found it hard to imagine a day when a name like Kiwanuka could sit comfortably on the back of a football shirt here. Nonetheless, when his parents took him and his brother back to Uganda to visit family, he and his brother were immediately recognised as British tourists. Like most of his schoolmates, he liked bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, Offspring and Blur, but it was only when he discovered that Jimi Hendrix was black that he understood he had a place playing rock guitar.
