Miguel served up a unique blend of psychedelic soul and sultry rock & roll swagger on 2015's daring Wildheart. This year, the Grammy-winning SoCal singer-songwriter has been keeping up the momentum, touring the international festival circuit and writing nonstop while on the road. In the past two months he's released "How Many," a demo in support of the Black Lives Matter movement – followed by "Cadillac," a glittering dance track for Baz Luhrmann-directed Netflix series The Get Down, as well as a seductive wink of a summer jam, "Come Through and Chill."
Unsurprisingly, Miguel is as adventurous in style as he is in song. He kept the audience rapt during a downpour at the 2016 Governors Ball, clad in a Mexican sarape, Rolex and shredded white jeans. Rolling Stone caught up with him later on at New York's Bowery Hotel, where he showed off some staples from his wardrobe and discussed his sartorial philosophy. "My style is Venice Beach meets East L.A.: Easy Rider chic," he told RS. "I like whatever is authentic to who I am and where I'm from. … I like to feel as comfortable and as free as possible."
