ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIOGRAPHY-ROBIN BANK$

ROBIN BANK$ is a blues singer/songwriter whose bittersweet voice and sassy, sultry performances have captivated audiences since the early 90s. Having been raised a mere 50 miles from Detroit, she instantly fell in love with Soul and Motown music. She studied jazz in college and in 1992 she formed The ROBIN BANK$ Blues Band and has since performed at clubs and festivals throughout much of the U.S. and Canada.

In 1996 she released her debut CD Permanent Record which received international airplay and accolades. That release led to her winning the award for New Artist of the Year at the 1997 Mapleblues Awards. The following year she was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year.

ROBIN relocated to Dallas, Texas in 1999 and reformed her band with some of the area's finest musicians. In 2001, she recorded her second CD Honestly which features Dallas Blues artists including the great Sam Myers, Hash Brown, Pat Boyack, Randy McAllister, Holland K. Smith and others.

October 2002 marked the birth of ROBIN BANK$ 3rd recorded effort, ROBIN BANK$ LIVE After Dark which features Hash Brown, Christian Dozzler, Drew Allain and Marc Wilson. It also includes many Chicago Blues standards by Jimmie Rogers, Willie Dixon, Robert Lockwood Jr. as well as ROBIN BANK$ original material. The CD is an outstanding live recording of a performance caught on tape at After Dark, a Dallas nightclub.

The ROBIN BANK$ Blues Band performs some 240 nights each year internationally. In 2002 ROBIN BANK$ was nominated for Blues Band of the Year at the Dallas Music Awards.

In the spring of 2003 ROBIN BANK$ performed to several satisfied and sold out audiences throughout Belgium and Holland. This marked the beginning of her professional European career.

ROBIN BANK$ has performed professionally with the following Blues Artists: Kid Ramos, Ronnie James, Bob Margolin, Wild Child Butler, Jim Suhler, Junior Boy Jones, Chick Willis, RL Griffin, Pat Boyack, Willie Big Eyes Smith, Hash Brown, Sweet Sam Myers, Chicago Pete, Roy Roberts, Priscilla Price, Maurice Jon Vaughn, Casey Jones, Marcia Ball, Marchel Ivery, Junior Watson and many others. Severn recording artist and veteran Texas Blues guitarist Johnny Moeller currently holds the position of guitarist in Robin's band.

Considered by many of her peers a dominant new force in the Blues scene, Ms. Banks' award winning performances remind one of the sincerity and intensity of the Blues. Her vocal strength is only rivaled by her passion for entertaining.

WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT ROBIN BANK$ AND HER MUSIC:

ROBIN BANK$ has got the goods! Honestly (self release). This is her first record since leaving balmy Detroit, Mich., for the wilds of Dallas, Texas, where she put together a great band. Bank$ never over sings, and her sidemen are tight and confident. Songs get room to breathe, there's plenty of subtle swing, and the production never gets in the way. Guest Sam Myers blows great harp on the shuffling charmer Don't Ya Love Me Like That? and banters with Bank$ on I Need A Lovin Man and guitarist Hash Brown stands out. Other winners: The cooking Money rewrite Work It Out and the two stepping Thunder and Lightnin'.
-Jeff Calvin, Blues Revue Issue # 72, November 2001

Robin is not only a great and dynamic singer, but she also has a wonderful way of entertaining an audience, you know? She's one lady who I can say, I like the way she thinks, Miss ROBIN BANK$
-Bullseye Recording Artist and Multiple Handy Award Winning Blues Artist, "Sweet" Sam Myers

On Honestly, Robin Bank$ displays true emotion. Her love for the blues is evident throughout. This is only a glimpse of what lies ahead
-Anson Funderburgh, Bullseye Recording Artist

Robin, she'll break your heart and kick your ass, all in about a minute!
-Lee McBee, Blacktop Recording Artist

Hot and sultry, Banks has got IT!
-Blues Access Magazine

...a dynamic singer who can handle quite a variety of Blues... shows taste and maturity that I rarely hear these days...
-Bruce Iglauer, Alligator Records
