Singer and songwriter Michael Kiwanuka is just about to release his debut album, but his gloriously soulful sound has already seen him compared to the likes of Otis Redding.

He recently picked up the coveted BBC Sound of 2012 accolade and already has a packed summer schedule - with numerous festival appearances planned.

He appeared on the Andrew Marr show for a brief chat, and to perform I'm Getting Ready.
