Jacob Banks Shares “Slow Up” Live at Roundhouse London – Watch Here
Critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Jacob Banks releases a live performance of “Slow Up” as the final in a series of three videos created in partnership with YouTube Music Artist on the Rise, an emerging artist program dedicated to supporting up-and-coming talent. Jacob self-directed the powerful video, and WNYC’s New Sounds declares “he has developed a large following for his remarkable voice and his equally impressive storytelling gifts – stories he tells in songs and in a series of videos – short films really.”
“Slow Up” is featured on Jacob’s debut full-length album, Village, which was recently released via Interscope Records. The album was declared one of the “30 Best Albums of 2018” by VIBE, with Newsweek proclaiming, “though Village is Bank’s first release, it sounds like the collection from a seasoned musician.” The official music video for “Slow Up” debuted shortly after the release of Village, and Jacob recently performed the track on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Watch the performance of “Slow Up” in London below.
Jacob is currently in the midst of the sold-out North American leg of his Village tour. Jacob stopped by WNYC and Paste for acoustic sessions last week ahead of his biggest U.S. performance yet at New York City’s Brooklyn Steel. Tonight, Jacob will play Majestic Theatre in Detroit, going on to play Chicago, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis, among other cities, before wrapping this leg of his tour in Denver on March 9th (see remaining list of dates below).
