I saw Jacob Banks on the Jools Holland show and was struck by his unique voice and smooth performance.

This is an EP and is great value for money! Jacob has a soulful voice and the songs suit him well. Some of it is like a cross between Seal and John Mayer and my favourite song is currently "Dear Simone".

I have no doubt that Jacob has a shiny future if he keeps this up!

Edited to 5 stars. Still listening a year and a half later!

I have nothing but praise for this new artist!!! His voice is so soulful, it get's you feeling all kinds of emotions.
If you like Michael Kiwanuka or John Legend you're going to love this guy!!!
When he performs live you can really tell he means every single word.
Jacob Banks is going to be a huge artist!!!!
My favourite track on this EP is Dear Simone.
Really looking forward to him releasing a album and can only hope that his version of Rihanna's 'Stay' is included, if not that it's on the next BBC Live Lounge album.

I recently saw Jacob on the Jools Holland show and was very impressed with both his voice and the song. I think he sang "Rainy Day" which is on the EP. Did a web search and found this recording which I duly purchased.

The songs are a mix of 50/60s soul/gospel sounds and more contemporary themes such as "Kids On The Corner"

He reminds me very much of Sam Cooke with his smooth silky voice allied to some well crafted songs - faint praise indeed ! Certainly with the current crop of female R&B singers such as Emile Sandi hogging the limelight, it is refreshing to find a quality male singer in a similar genre. I would definitely recommend buying this 8 song EP as it's light years ahead of the typical trashy chart fodder you hear every day on the radio.

I would have given it 5 stars but my only slight criticism is the balance of songs in this collection. Whilst all the songs are good,I would have liked a couple of more up tempo numbers mixed in. That's only a personal opinion after the first couple of hearings, and one that may alter over time

This is the first review I've ever given. This is a truly astonishing voice and album. How is it possible that such music can go so little noticed. The music is so powerful and heart felt it eats straight into your soul. If a person makes only one album in his/her life of this beauty and power, it is more than enough. It both humbles and inspires that music of this wonder is still being made

...but sadly not reflected in this release. Excellent music, but unlike his live performance, his voice has been dumbed-down on this release. I do wish producers and record companies would stop doing this and let such great talent shine through!
