JACOB BANKS – MOVE WITH YOU //
One of the UK’s most talented and compelling new artists, Jacob Banks, has just announced the release of his debut single “Move With You”, set for release on 14 September through Atlantic Records.
“Move With You”, produced by Knox Brown and co-written with The Rookies (who worked on The Monologue EP), is Jacob’s debut single on Atlantic Records and is just the beginning for this young and hugely talented artist. He is a songwriter that keeps raising the bar higher with his deeply soulful vocals shining through on everything he does, whether that’s an emotional R&B track or like ‘Move With You’, a retro-feeling, fast-paced boogie/doo-wop smash!
At only 22 years old Jacob has already achieved so much and built an incredible following and support. Since deciding music was something he really wanted to pursue he has gone from strength to strength. His big break came when he won the MOBO Unsung competition and studio session with acclaimed British artist Plan B, who went on to mentor his early career.
