The duo’s dynamic and emotionally charged live show with all its energy, musical chemistry and spontaneity has drawn comparisons with the virtuosic pairing of John Martyn and Danny Thompson.

Jacob’s sweeping vocals never fail to captivate. The fluidity and precision of his finger-picking is underpinned by Drinkwater’s nimbly rhythmic double bass. Throw in their stirring vocal harmonies and you have a very special performance indeed. 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.
