Musicians and artists can have a many different muses in their lives. Whether it be a particular person or an event, the one major influence into music is the environment around them. Whether it be locally or globally, when you listen to music you can get an idea of what was going on around the musician. That is why I wanted to highlight this amazing artist Jacob Banks. His recent song “Chainsmoking” along with the music video illustrates so much, it’s hard to put into words. His EP is perfectly titled The Boy Who Cried Freedom and I assure you it’s one you need to add to your collection. I want you to take a second and watch this masterpiece and get lost in the world Jacob Banks created.
