“Absolutely glorious” Lauren Laverne – BBC 6 Music, British-Ugandan singers ongwriter Daudi Matsiko’s debut album, ‘The King Of Misery,’ is a hauntingly beautiful exploration of depression, bipolar disorder, and finding hope in that experience. His fragile yet powerful vocals, evocative lyrics, and modern folk melodies have earned high praise from Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne, Jamz Supernova, Dean Jackson, Sian Eleri, Jamie Cullum, Tom Robinson, John Kennedy and Simon Phillips. Interviewed on episode 215 of The Adam Buxton Podcast, and with a mesmerising live session at BBC Maida Vale for Gilles Peterson on BBC 6 Music. With audience members hooked on every word, every performance life affirming, dedicated to holding space for tears as well as laughter, Matsiko is not to be missed live.
