This 24-year-old British soul singer just released his first full-length album, but he's already drawing comparisons to the likes of Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding. Kiwanuka's husky croon and affection for the Band-style roots-rock makes Home Again one of the year's best debuts. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, who is featured on a Kiwanuka track called "Lasan," is also gigging on Friday – so don't be shocked if he pops up for a special guest appearance.
