I’ve been aware of Jacob Banks for a while now since his song Kids on the Corner caught my ears a few months ago. It was from his brilliantly-entitled debut EP The Monologue. Great tune and deserves all the attention it can get, I was glad to hear it pop up on the soundtrack in Channel 4’s second series of Top Boy recently.
The single that came off The Monologue was Worthy and has been gaining Banks more and more recognition. Rumour has it that the Mahogany Sessions may be planning a session with the man himself soon too, that’s definitely one to watch out for. This guy could well blow up very soon.
