Jacob Banks SoulCulture 13 For 13

Hometown: Birmingham, UK
Record Label: Renowned
Age: 21

Birmingham UK hailing Jacob Banks is an goosebump inciting old soul talent in 21-year-old frame.
The singer, songwriter and self trained guitarist, who first popped onto our radar last year after winning Adidas’ “Are You In” nationwide competition (scooping a mentorship Plan B), delivers music soaked in just the right amount of nostalgia/retro influence combined with a modern, personal and emotive edge that will appeal to lovers of great music young and old.

After delivering his standing ovation worthy debut EP The Monologue last week (download it free here), the star in the making who is represented by the Renowned/Levels team (responsible for the success of Wretch 32, Daley, Josh Kumra and more) is set to hit stages across the UK and the world over the coming months whilst crafting his forthcoming debut album.

Expect nothing less than greatness from Mr Banks in 2013.
