For some reason I cannot get the name Otis Redding out of my head when I hear Kiwanuka. I know it isn’t a dead on comparison but there is something in there that calls the late Mr. Redding to mind (ah ha! I am not alone in this, just read the press release and they compare him to Redding too).
Kiwanuka is from London, the child of immigrants from Uganda. Give him a listen.
