Live Performance: Michael Kiwanuka Says “You Ain’t The Problem”

November 20, 2019 – The UK’s Michael Kiwanuka is traveling entirely in his own lane. His music keeps evolving in its depth and complexity, and he’s managed gracefully to meld rock, soul, folk, R&B, hip hop and electronica into a genre that is decidedly his alone. I’m running out of appropriate adjectives to describe his work, but organic, authentic, rich and ethereal come most immediately to mind. The man simply never disappoints.

We feature here a recent live performance on Later…with Jools Holland of the song “You Ain’t The Problem” from his just-released new album, Kiwanuka.  Everything and everyone on this propulsive track is firing on all cylinders. Enjoy.
