English soul singer Jacob Banks released Village, his debut full-length album, in November via Interscope. He’s touring the album here in the United States, and he visits 9:30 Club on Tuesday, Feb. 19. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.
Parklife DC saw Jacob at the Rock and Roll Hotel two years ago, when he was in the process of issuing a series of EPs, and we were astounded by his voice.
“The musician from Birmingham, England, defies easy categorization. Although he’s certainly a soul singer dabbling in hip hop, his giant voice floats on top of any backing instrumentation, putting his vocals forward in a manner characteristic of trip hop artists,” we wrote. “When Jacob sings, he sings with passion. He flows into the microphone, alternatively pleading or snarling.”
