UK alt -folk duo Jacob & Drinkwater have been called ‘stand out new Folk’ by BBC6 Music and ‘inventive and thrilling’ by R2 Magazine.
Jacob's sweeping vocals never fail to captivate, delivering many a spine-tingling moment; the fluidity and precision of his finger-picking underpinned by Drinkwater's nimbly rhythmic double bass; at times sweetly soaring, haunting, percussive and driving, the layers of depth a perfect counterfoil. Featured numerous times on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and lauded by their musical peers as one of the most accomplished acts touring the circuit today.
Throughout 2018 the duo performed at festivals in the UK and Europe and London’s historic Union Chapel. In September they embarked on their ’Waters Of England’ tour; combining live touring with open water swimming in locations across the UK and documenting their adventures via their social media pages.
The February 2019 “This Old River’ tour will be their biggest to date and coincides with the release of their first full studio album (20.03.19), successfully crowdfunded through Indiegogo. The duo recently appeared live on BBC Radio ‘Loose Ends’ playing new song ‘There’s A Shadow On The Sun’
