Meet Island Banks, a multi-genre musical artist who creates tracks to cover house music


Banks is all the rage in the Essex music community. He has entertained them since he was a little boy. He spent most of his teenage years singing with all his heart, and it was all thanks to his supportive family. His father introduced him to the insightful world of hip hop.

Hip hop icons at the time were Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Dre, etc. His siblings also had their musical tastes from which he derived his interpretation. One was affiliated with Pop, while the other seemed to enjoy smooth R&B. He became so well placed, and by 17, he had written his own music.

Bank’s pilgrimage to make a name for itself

As he continued to shine in his local performances and demos, he was spotted by a few important stars. They collaborated with songs that would eventually be shown on TV and popular local TV channels.

Realizing the amount of resource he turned out to be, Banks felt the urge to shape his brand. It took some time off the stage and later resurfaced as the Island Banks. His comeback was graced with two hit singles that took him to a whole new level.

By this time, he had also identified his main genre, which would be the British garage. It was a good choice, and the response from the masses was clear evidence of it. The excellent return of garage legend Mark Hill, who produced Craig Davids’ debut album in 2001, was a real assurance.

Notable achievements of the Bank

Island Banks has a trophy to show. One of the highlights of his career was when he won a “Make you Famous” radio competition with his hit song “See you again”.

Her first song was selected as an introductory track for BBC Essex Radio. He had some performances in important avenues. Some of the most notable of these include; Sx Festival, Embassy club London and Channel U as well as local spots.

The banks have a lot going on. He gave a hint of his upcoming projects which include;

  • A single house, “Play it cool” signed by Perfect Havoc Records
  • Several features with famous in-house producers
  • Collaborations with artists on new upcoming tracks


Island Banks is definitely an artist to watch. His determination to put the house and garage genres in a position for higher odds is evident. Let us come together behind him and awaken our spirits.
