Banks’ whisper-like voice and melancholic instrumentals go hand in hand. Jillian Rose Banks, with her moniker Banks often stylized in all caps, has a lilt to her voice that adds dimension and a dynamic quality.
She began writing songs at the age of 15 and taught herself piano on a keyboard a friend gifted to help her cope with her parents’ divorce. She also got her bachelor’s degree in psychology and kept her music private while in school. In 2013 she released two EPs called Fall Over and London and in 2014 put out her debut album Goddess which reached number 12 on the US Billboard 200.
