GREG BANKS bounced back into NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of the Day hotspot for the second time with track, ‘Way Out’.
Continuing the smooth R&B funk combo, featured in previous effort, ‘I’ll Be There’, the latest single is Greg’s most personal piece to date. Through his infamous after-hours falsetto, the funkmaster from New York lays his cards on the table and opens up to the trials and tribulations of living in a busy city…but this guy has enough faith to carry him into this lifetime and the next. He accepts rejection is part of life, which can be turned into opportunities.
GREG BANKS first graced his presence on the blog with single, ‘Tell Me’ which also claimed the blog’s Song of the Day hotspot back in April.
Before you head off, check out Greg’s super smooth number…and if you like what you hear, the video to the single is coming out this Friday!!! That should be good!
Today’s song comes from GREG BANKS’ funked up effort, ‘Tell Me’. The New Orleans native has been described as “The Saint of Soul”, bearing the influences of Prince, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone.
Growing up the fifth of nine children, being raised by a single mother in some of the worst housing projects in Louisiana, Banks views his childhood as nothing less than a home and environment of love and from the age of five, Greg and his family knew singing had to be in his future. He would make a song up about everything and anything and sing constantly, which annoyed his brothers and sisters.
In 2012, with just two bags and a dream, Banks moved to NYC to continue the pursuit of his passion and was introduced to his manager and this partnership sparked the evolution of turning potential into purpose…and it wasn’t long that he mesmerised the audiences throughout NYC and was chosen by Deli Magazine as NYC’s best emerging artist.
With his previous hit singles ‘Your Love’, ’16’ and ‘Brooklyn Girl’ , this phenomenon, in the shape of ‘Tell Me’, is causing a further buzz across the industry. You must check this one out; sounds like this guy has been possessed by Lenny Kravitz and Prince – all at once!
