Michael Kiwanuka is torn. The 24-year-old Londoner, whose debut album, Home Again, is released today, is honored to even be in the same breath as legends like Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye—both to whom his wistfully weathered-croon has been compared. But the up-and-coming talent admits he'll get annoyed if the incessant comparisons persist, "I think people will find out more about me when there's more albums and more music," he concedes. Despite possessing only a handful of tender tunes—many of which form a bond between workingman's soul, rustic roots, and wind-battered blues—Kiwanuka was recently named the winner of the BBC's prestigious "Sound Of 2012" poll, expanding his fanbase from shameless critics at open-mic nights to adoring fans in countries across the globe.
