BBC Radio 6 Music Festival 2020 - By Night
With his acoustic sound and timelessly soulful voice, British singer/songwriter Michael Kiwanuka emerged to acclaim in 2011 combining folk, indie rock, and R&B with traditions borrowed from his Ugandan heritage. Drawing favourable comparisons to Curtis Mayfield, Terry Callier, and Van Morrison, Kiwanuka earned a Mercury Prize nomination for his debut album, 2012's Home Again, and won the BBC's Sound of 2012. He further cemented his reputation as a gifted and rootsy performer with his sophomore album, 2016's Love & Hate, which went gold, landing at number one in the UK.

As the frontwoman and guitarist for Alabama Shakes, Howard has become one of music’s most celebrated figures. The band has won four Grammys (out of its nine nominations), and she has performed everywhere from the Obama White House to the main stage at Lollapalooza, where she sang with Paul McCartney at his invitation. But for her solo debut, Jaime, Howard boldly decided to explore new directions, with diverse instrumentation and arrangements and intimate, revelatory lyrics.

Uncompromising but still melodic: strap yourself in for the experimental sound of maverick four-piece black midi. They met at the Brit School and built their reputation through fierce, driven gigs at Brixton’s Windmill, before supporting Shame and performing at SXSW – making a number of ‘best band’ lists – on their debut American tour. Their reference points include rapper Danny Brown, Death Grips, Deerhoof, Miles Davis and Talking Heads, and their sound has been described as ‘country twangs, ambient textures, funky basslines, industrial beats, and noisy riffs – sometimes in the same song’ (The Outline).
