Born in Nigeria and based in England, the singer-songwriter Jacob Banks creates soul music that's uncompromisingly honest but thrillingly cinematic. The self-taught musician did not begin singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20, Banks got his start at open mic nights around Birmingham in 2011 and quickly won major attention for his commanding vocal presence and intimate songwriting. In early 2013 he released his debut EP, "The Monologue," which earned him such praise that he was soon supporting such artists as Emeli Sandé and Alicia Keys on tour.
