Soul singer Jacob Banks has recently released the video for his second single Worthy, which is the first official video from the singer. The song which is taken from his EP The Monologue has been praised by Radio 1’s Zane Lowe even gaining the title as the radio DJ’s ‘Next Hype’ record.
The 21-year-old singer-songwriter from Birmingham, who is managed by XYZee – the same people who manage Wretch 32 and George the Poet – is already creating a buzz in the underground music scene as well as the mainstream.
Jacob, who taught himself to play the guitar, became the first unsigned artist to perform on Radio 1’s Live Lounge, with his cover of Rihanna’s Stay and Kendrick Lamar’s Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe staying on the station longer than most covers do.
