Saw the amazing Michael Kiwanuka a couple weekends ago. It was sublime. He had announced his tour early 2016, and I bought tickets many months in advance for his Dec 2016 show. Unfortunately, he had to cancel due to tonsillitis and reschedule for May 2017. I missed the onsale day the second time around, and he sold out quickly at the Fillmore in San Francisco. His awesome song Cold Little Heart became the opening of the HBO series Big Little Lies between the time I bought tickets initially and the rescheduled onsale. He has been selling out ever since. Luckily, my friend Gurj Bassi helped us out by getting Nazlee and I two passes courtesy of Universal Music for Michael Kiwanuka’s show. He’s another one to watch as his music is timeless. His 2016 album Love And Hate was my 2016 album of the year. Despite my not blogging about it or shouting on the rooftops about him, I took every opportunity to let people know how much I loved and appreciated his music.
Here’s Father’s Child, one of my favorite Michael Kiwanuka songs live via BBC Radio 6. Enjoy.
