Born in Nigeria, Jacob Banks moved to Birmingham in England at the age of 13. Not short of talent, the Brit dabbled in all forms of the creative arts and began singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20.

'The Boy Who Cried Freedom', which received wide critical acclaim, includes powerful singles like 'Unholy War,' and smash hit, 'Chainsmoking,' which TIME Magazine listed as one of the best songs of 2017 so far. Nylon Magazine raved that the project "gives equal shine to Banks" voice and songwriting skills, highlighting his mastery of metaphors and imagery akin to that of a verified, contemporary poet."

Now, at work on his Interscope Records debut album, Banks hopes to reenergize a genre-blending brand of music for a new generation hoping to be their solace in hard times and a battery pack on a slow Monday morning.
