It’s not hard to fall in love with Banks. If her model stunning looks don’t get you, her silky beautiful voice will.
Banks (Jillian Banks) has been slowly but steadily putting out songs over the last few years and she has become quite the sensation. Victoria Secret featured her, Fashion Weeks have featured her, and she has recently been spotlighted on BBC Radio 1. I first heard Banks after the hugely influential BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe featured her on his show.
Banks has been blowing up like the Godfather and she is in production of her first full length album. For now, you can check out her EP (London), and the many remixes and covers on her Soundcloud page.
Banks has the sexy r’n’b appeal that The Weeknd had when he first came out, and in fact Banks opened for him on tour recently. She has a sexy, sultry, voice, and the beats and arrangements on her tracks are spot on.
According to music blogs, 2014 is the year of Banks, and I could not agree more. This girl is going to be huge.
