Tobias Ben Jacob
Devon based Singer-Songwriter Tobias ben Jacob has been recently lauded by BBC 6’s Tom Robinson and this Spring has seen airplay for new single Burning Low on national radio including BBC Radio 2, BBC6, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, BBC Bristol, Blues & Roots and FRUK as well as being described by R2: Rock n Reel Magazine as ‘inventive and thrilling’ and doing a session for legendary broadcaster Whispering Bob Harris’ ‘Under The Apple Tree Sessions’.

Tobias’ live show is a dynamic and emotionally charged affair, ranging from high-crystalline falsetto led tracks like ‘We Are The First Ones Now’ to more driving riff-driven earthy numbers like ‘I Breathe In Life.’ He also plays in a duo with upright bass player and singer Lukas Drinkwater. The pair released the double A -side ‘Burning Low/Autosong’ on Folkstock Records in March and have an EP due for release in the summer. The duo played their first gig together at Glastonbury 2014 and have been captivating audiences on the UK festival and acoustic scene since.

Some of Tobias’ career highlights to date have included performing live on air at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios for ‘Late Junction’ on Radio 3, recording music in Nashville, Tennessee and in Livingstone Studios, London, as well as touring many UK venues and festivals including Glastonbury, Green Man, Secret Garden Party, Somersault, Larmer Tree and Electric Picnic. Prior to going solo Tobias played in ‘The Roots Union’ alongside Folk Award winners Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin.

Lukas Drinkwater
Lukas Drinkwater is a session musician based in Exeter, UK. Specialising in double bass, electric bass, vocals and guitar, Lukas has quickly become one of the most in-demand session musicians on the touring circuit, working with some of the biggest names in folk & jazz.

Currently touring as a solo performer, as part of a duo with acclaimed acoustic troubadour Tobias ben Jacob, with European festival favourites Tankus the Henge, and as a duo with BBC Folk Award nominee Ange Hardy – Lukas, rightly earns his title as one of the busiest musicians in the UK.

"Hard working multi-instrumentalist Lukas Drinkwater pops up all over the place, in trad and swing jazz bands, alongside folky singer/songwriters - plus he's even one of the 3 Daft Monkeys. But it's nice to give him a chance to just be himself with a guitar and a few of his own songs - so here he is." ~ John Blakely, Sheelanagig & The Canteen Venue, Bristol
