Ignite Festival News – JACOB BANKS @ Okeechobee Festival!

JACOB BANKS is a 25-year-old singer/songwriter from England by way of Nigeria, and his music features richly textured beats, 808s and synth play with a node to African groves. Jacob self-produces a lot of his music and is reinventing soul for a new generation. Tapped by PAPER and TEEN VOGUE as an artist to watch this year. He’s currently on tour in the U.S. with Lèon and will be making a big splash at SXSW followed by performances at Firefly and Okeecheeba. In the UK, he’s toured with Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Emeli Sandé. Before signing, he was also the first-ever unsigned artist to perform on BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge.

We premiered his first single “Unholy War” off the upcoming EP with Interview Magazine:  The track hit #1 on Hype Machine charts this week and has been added to a number of playlists across Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music. Its… fire.
