\"Banks\' melodies are beautifully mezmerizing.\"
-The Austin Chronicle
\"Songwriter Paul Banks, 24, is another Austin force to be reckoned with . . . His favorite songwriter is Paul Simon, but Banks\' voice has supreme range. He can go from sounding like a folk-singer Strokes frontman to a gorgeous Roy Orbison to stripped down Muse. There is an epic sweep to Banks\' songs . . .\"
-San Antonio Express News SXSW Write-up
\"Soaring and dare I say angelic vocal stylings, which easily split the difference between Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. I’d be lying if I said I’m not absolutely floored by this man’s singing, and I have yet to hear a sour note leave his lips . . . His band was quite impressive as well, they not only played well but managed to keep up with Banks’ vocal acrobatics with flawless harmonies.\"
\"...managed to put together eight tracks that confidently tell their stories with a charm and melodies that stick in your head. I\'ve been whistling \"Live to Share\" for a week now, and I\'m okay with that.\"
