Miguel’s moody awak­en­ing

Mu­sic | Miguel | March 12, Rebel

Toronto Life - - Culture -

Prince’s man­tle should be safe in the hands of Miguel, a se­duc­tive L.A. heart­throb with a lush falsetto and some killer gui­tar chops. Though he made his name on lusty R&B jams, his lat­est al­bum, War and Leisure, is the sound of a sex sym­bol wak­ing up to the world out­side his bed­room—to protests in Stand­ing Rock, to flood­ing in New Or­leans, to po­lice shoot­ings in too many cities to count. At Rebel this month, Miguel will couch his weight­ier mus­ings in steamy love songs, filled with char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally slinky melodies and bluesy gui­tar riffs.
