You may have no idea who Banks is but according to Fox Weekly she is the “American Singer/Songwriter to watch out for”, and I have no choice but to completely agree! Her hauntingly, beautiful voice captivates your ears. While the sexy, laid-back lyrics keep you listening to her sultry R&B songs. Her full name is Jillian Rose Banks which may or may not be gossiped about, however in contrary, her stage name “Banks” I believe will be talked about on the radio in the months, weeks, or even days to come….
Banks has been compared, similarly to the Juno Award winning artist ‘The Weeknd”, but is in no way copying the R&B singer. Banks is a unique gem all on her own. Her Debut album “Goddess” was released on September 5th, 2014 and she is finally getting more of the credit that she righteously deserves. Her single off the album “Waiting Game” was featured on a Victoria Secret Commercial and in a trailer for the soon-to-be released film “The Longest Ride.”
Some of her other singles that need to be listened to for the “raw” sound are “Drowning”, “Beggin for Thread”, “Brain” and two of her tracks which wound up being featured on the October 9th, 2014 episode of Greys Anatomy; “Goddess” and “You Should Know Where I’m Coming From.”
Her sensual tone, and lyrically poetic songs make Banks my top pick for singer that we’ll all be talking about. You’ll be hearing her single “Waiting Game” on the radio very soon. Just wait for it.
