Artist & Event Info

Following a sold out show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen in April, Jacob returns to the capital for a headline show this October, with new EP ‘The Boy Who Cried Freedom’ out now

Jacob Banks never intended to pursue a singing career. It wasn’t until one of his closest friends, who had encouraged the young Londoner to pursue a career in music, passed away that he even began to take music seriously. Determined to make it on his own, Banks didn’t go down the traditional route of finding a manager or record label but entered music competitions, self-releasing his first EP in 2013.

With a sound that could be at home in the Delta, Jacob Banks’ production is infused with gospel, soul, electric guitar and slick digital touches – you’d be hard-pushed to guess at his upbringing in Nigeria, before moving to Birmingham, England.

Support comes from South London’s, Joy Crookes.
