Having performed in Liverpool Cathedral’s choir from the age of 7, Banners aka Michael Nelson then went on to work as an assistant at Liverpool’s renowned Parr Street Studios with his father, record producer Ken Nelson who produced records for; Gomez, Badly Drawn Boy and Coldplay‘s first three albums.
Through that an opportunity arose to travel with his father to Canada, that eventually led to his own demos ending up in the hands of a producer Stephen Kozmeniuk (Koz) and things snowballed from there. Fast Forward to over a billion streams (you might recognise his hit ‘Someone To You‘), major syncs, some epic Tik Tok moments, a performance on Jimmy Kimmel and recently returning to the UK to launch a new chapter with Nettwerk.
Banners just released a new track, “Easy.” Check out the full track and review below!
It is such a great release. The instrumentals are beautiful and pair well with his vocals. He has a great voice that soars throughout. He has versatility and a tone that can’t be taught. Definitely a standout this week. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
