Press / Reviews

Even for a full band, this album is quite an achievement, for a solo project, it’s a flippin’ masterpiece. Take note rockers looking to flock the ranks to to solo realms…this is how you do it.” - Dave Franklin

Dancing Around Architecture

There are some similarities in this single that tie Bryan to some very popular folk rock and country musicians. His choice in guitar melodies and rhythms is closely related to acoustic versions of songs by James Vincent McMorrow. The soft guitar adds a raw element to the already emotional song and allows the voice to power through above all instrumentation. Bryan’s vocal range is a little deeper and lower than James, sounding more like The Lumineers.”

Bryan Banks employs his hypnotic skill on the guitar, emotional lyrics, and classical rock beats to tell a story with music. With influences from metal, rock, R&B, country, and everything else in between, he doesn’t let anything hold him back. He writes mostly about the pitfalls of relationships and his single “The Less You Know” is no different.”
