Singer, songwriter and revered live performer JACOB BANKS, today shares his powerful performance of his track “Mercy” filmed in Berlin, GE as part of the COLORS Berlin sessions. The video, recorded live, showcases Jacob’s enthralling voice and further cements his profile as one of the industry’s favorite breakout acts of 2017. “Mercy” is taken off Jacob’s debut label EP, The Boy Who Cried Freedom, which was released earlier this Spring.
Since the release of his EP in April, Jacob has been pumping out quality visuals to celebrate the release. Just last week he showed the world his film prowess with the thrilling video for single “Chainsmoking” which he wrote and co-directed himself. The video, which premiered via i-D Magazine, can be viewed here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjNxTyEZBMc
