Banks Biography & News
Superstar in the making? Bank(s) on it
She was Vogue's Music Artist of the Week back on August 9, 2013. Her public Facebook page once held her actual phone number. She has a bachelor's degree in psychology. And she's also been featured in a commercial for Victoria's Secret.
Yes, there's definitely an allure and air of mystique to (Jillian) Banks, whose smooth and seductive voice has captivated fans around the world. She has released music under Harvest Records, Good Year Records and Iamsound Records, and her brand of dark R&B has earned her comparison to some of music's biggest names (for the record, she cites Lauryn Hill and Fiona Apple as her biggest influences).
What separates Banks from the pack is her use of websites, such as Soundcloud, to connect fans to her music. Sure, there are labels involved now… but BBC Radio 1 was among those to play her first official single, "Before I Ever Met You" while it was embedded on Banks' private Soundcloud page.
Banks released her first EP, "Fall Over," on the Iamsound Records/Good Years Recordings labels. It was followed by a second EP called "London" on the Harvest Records label in 2013, and the song "Waiting Game" was featured in the 2013 Victoria's Secret holiday commercial.
She has served as the opening act for The Weeknd during his fall 2013 tour, and Banks is set to headline her own tour in 2014. It kicks off in March in the United Kingdom, but also includes dates stateside. One is a stop at Bonnaroo from June 12-15 in Manchester, Tennessee.
