Jacob Banks – singer from the UK
Jacob Banks was born on 24 July 1991, in Birmingham, England. He became a famous singer and songwriter at a fairly young age. The artist prefers to keep his life beyond the studio private so fans know little about it. Jacob enjoyed music from childhood. When the singer was 21, he won a local singing contest MOBO UnSung, which helped him gain confidence in his talent. Banks uses such genres as R&B, soul, and hip-hop.
In 2013, the artist released his debut EP, The Monologue, the second single from which, “Worthy”, was performed on BBC Radio 1 by Zane Lowe. The same year, Banks joined a famous British singer, Emeli Sande, on her tour of the UK. Later that year, the artist performed “Doing OK” with Wretch 32, who included the single in his next album.
Together with the duo Chase and Status, Banks recorded a popular track “Alive”, which became a part of their new album, Brand New Machine. Later, he supported the band on its tour of the UK to promote that LP. After some time, Banks joined Wretch 32 one more time. They were planning to release an album, called Gambling Man, but it never came out.
