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

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.”

The Less You Know” he pulls back the reins on the heavy metal side of his artistry and allows his diverse flavors of vocals to take a softer side.” - Ashley Hart

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.”

Bryan Banks' epic record “The Sudden Sound of Urgency” combines the lyrics and music together to mirror the feeling of urgency. The rhythm and flow of the album has a sound of urgency as the song comes in fast and maintains an intense level throughout the song only to slow down in the chorus long enough to take a breath.” - Lauren Montgomery

There is definite talent within the music of Bryan Banks as he seems to take many different flavors of Rock and Roll when creating his music. His music takes some Rock and Roll, Funk, and Grunge with a large hint of Heavy Metal thrown in and mixes all those styles together in the sound that makes up his music
