If Banks is an unfamiliar name to you, where have you been?!

Get acquainted with this singer/songwriter, she is set to make a big impact on 2014.

Hailing from Los Angeles, Banks (real name Jillian Banks) is now based in London and has been writing songs since the tender age of 15. Her debut EP, “Fall Over” was released in March 2013, followed by “London” which caught the attention of Radio 1 DJ, Zane Lowe  and gained her a celebrity fan in the form of Ellie Goulding.

The singer has made excellent use of social media in order to get her music to the masses, putting tracks up on soundcloud before releaseing her first official single, “Before I Ever Met You” last February.

Banks toured with The Weekend last year and Victoria’s Secret featured her track, “Waiting Game” in their 2013 holiday commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaI5JCxOCdw

She was in the running for BBC’s Sound Of 2014 but came in third, losing out to winner, Sam Smith.

The singer is taking to the tour circuit in his first headline tour of the UK later this year with dates in Glasgow, Sheffield, Manchester and London.

Tickets are available now. Both “Fall Over” and “London” are also available now.
