Michael Kiwanuka/Brel, Glasgow/27.10.11
You’re playing Glasgow on 27 October. Why should people come down and check you out?
That’s up to the people to decide.
Is Scotland a place that holds many memories for you?
I haven’t been to Scotland much. Hopefully the 27th will become a nice memory to talk about in the future.
What is the best time of the day to listen to your music?
I’d say the evening is the best.
You supported Adele this year, who obviously has enjoyed massive success recently. Do you ever think you’ll get that big?
I don’t know, but I’m sure it will be a nice feeling if I did.
What do you reckon is the most prevalent inspiration that comes through in your music?
I’d say a mixture of soul singers I enjoy, like Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye with a lot of the folk sensibilities of singers like Terry Callier and even sprinkles of Bob Dylan.
How would you rate your 2011 so far?
Amazing. Loads of really cool things have happened including supporting Adele and releasing the two EPs thus far. Hopefully there’s more to come.
