Singer/songwriter Jacob Banks moved from Nigeria to Birmingham, UK at the age of 13, and began singing, playing guitar and writing songs at the age of 20. He got his start recording songs for friends to listen to in their cars and hitting the open mic circuit before self-releasing his first EP The Monologue in 2013.
He has since released independent EP The Paradox and made his debut on Interscope Records with The Boy Who Cried Freedom EP, which was praised by everyone from The New York Times to Vogue, with Time recognizing “Chainsmoking” as one of the “Best Songs of 2017 So Far” and The FADERnaming “Mercy” one of their “Songs You Need in Your Life This Week.” Track “Unknown (To You)”has also received critical acclaim, featured on The New York Times’ “The Playlist” and NYLON’s “Soundcheck: The 11 Best Releases of the Week” upon release.
Having supported Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Emeli Sandé on tour, Jacob is now selling out headlining shows around the globe and playing to festival crowds including Coachella, BottleRock, Shaky Knees and the forthcoming Afropunk Festival. Last summer, Jacob played Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, The Meadows, Firefly, and Outside Lands, with The New York Times naming Jacob one of “12 Notable Acts” at SXSW.
