Heads up: BlackGrooves

Thanks to the online periodical blackgrooves.org, I just discovered new artist Kevin Michael. His (still fairly new) CD features collaborations with Lupe Fiasco, Wyclef Jean, Q-Tip, and Akil Dasan. On the heels of John Legend’s recent success, this R&B crooner is going to look at first glance like he’s posing to ride that wave. But listen carefully:

Yes, Michael draws on the new-soul/acoustic r&b movement, but he’s developing sounds and relationships of his own as well…

Look for my review of Erykah Badu‘s new CD in next month’s issue of BlackGrooves.
