At the beginning of his career, the American urban singer Miguel
was often compared to legends like Babyface and Prince. But in recent years he has developed his singular innovative style in the R&B genre. Psychedelic funkadelic soul pop is the description that Miguel uses when he talks about his music. But actually you can add rock to that list too. If you listen to his latest record Wildheart
it's a step further in Miguel's musical evolution. It usually sounds artificial if R&B artists add screeching guitars to soul music, but with Miguel the result is natural. The songs are spacious and become even larger in a live setting, as we were able to observe during his latest concert in Paradiso, Amsterdam, last year. His concerts are raw, exciting and highly energetic. He scored his greatest hit in 2013 with Adorn
, which was awarded a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song.
