Banks

Saturday 5:40–6:20 Red Stage

Banks, the moniker for singer-songwriter Jillian Banks, is known for crafting atmospheric, electronically-driven pop with shades of contemporary R&B. Banks started writing as a teenager in California receiving a keyboard from a friend, writing and playing as simply a personal release for years before uploading the track “Before I Ever Met You” in early 2013. Just months later the Los Angeles native was releasing singles, including “Warm Water” and “Fall Over.” Later that year, she released a four-track EP, London, as she was opening for The Weeknd during his North American tour. Her full-length debut, Goddess, featured collaborations with producers Justin Parker and Shlohmo, with additional work with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, released in late 2014 and debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 chart.
