Banks started writing songs at the age of 15. She taught herself piano when she received a keyboard from a friend to help her through her parents’ divorce. She says she “felt very alone and helpless. I didn’t know how to express what I was feeling or who to talk to.”

She has toured internationally with The Weeknd and was also nominated for the Sound of 2014 award by the BBC and an MTV Brand New Nominee in 2014. On May 3, 2014, BANKS was labeled as an ‘Artist To Watch’ by Fox Weekly. Banks’ sound has been described as dark R&B and compared to The Weeknd but she cites Lauryn Hill and Fiona Apple as her biggest influences. She says that music helps her release her emotions and for that reason kept her music private while she earned her bachelor’s in psychology. Billboard also wrote that “her rhapsodic voice possesses a frail vulnerability and recalls singers like Feist and Erykah Badu.”

    In 2013 I heard this beautiful song called “This Is What It Feels Like” from her Fall EP and I’ve been hooked since. I have always wanted to meet her and say thank you for making such great music that has gotten me through some hard times in my life. Love the new album, and desperately want to see her perform Alaska live. Such an amazing song from the new album.

    I would like to win two concert tickets so that my partner and I can see one of our favorite artists live for the first time. My partner is an avid music listener and thinks Banks’ new album III is one of the best pop albums of the year. I am a musician and a baby music producer… as in I’m a noob not I make music for babies. I love the way Banks’ music is produced and want to see her live to gain inspiration.
