Jacob Banks – “Kids On The Corner” | Music Video

Ladies and gentlefolk, meet 21 year old Birmingham hailing soulful singer and songwriter Jacob Banks.

I’ve been keeping my eyes on this up and comer for a while now, ever since he first came to my attention last year after winning Adidas’ “Are You In” competition (and scooped mentorship Plan B). He’s been hitting the UK live circuit hard to much praise and now represented by the same management as one of the UK’s finest rappers Wretch 32 he is set to release his debut EP The Monologue (which I’ve had the pleasure of hearing in it’s entirety and it’s a winner).

The first single from the EP “Kid On The Corner”, a thought provoking tale soaked in just the right amount of nostalgia/retro influence, with a modern and personal edge that will appeal to lovers of great music young and old, has received an accompanying music video which perfectly accents the song.

Watch the CS Visuals directed video below.

The Monologue EP will be released soon on Levels/Renowned Records
