His voice, music and showmanship is breathtaking
CJ Beatz

With a very minimal length of time formally calling and considering himself a musician, the singer/songwriter has accomplished a great deal; having beaten thousands to win a competition that granted him the exclusive opportunity to create his own track alongside one of the UK’s most original artists, Plan B.

Having taught himself acoustic guitar to compliment his soulful sound in a mere six months, it’s clear Jacob is destined for big things in the year to come.
