One-time Mercury Music Prize hopeful Michael Kiwanuka is co-founding his own “organic” and “soul-rooted” label, Movement Records, with a group of musicians from London and NYC.

Kiwanuka, who is still on Communion Music’s books as a solo artist, will act as Movmement’s A&R and sit on its board of directors. He’ll also collaborate with its signed acts on various singles and a compilation recorded live and on vintage equipment at the Movement Records studio in London, set to be released in 2014.

On the Movement ethos, Kiwanuka says: “Music from the heart goes straight to the heart. Music that can move you is good music and that’s what Movement Records are focused on doing”.
