Liana Banks

Liana Bank$ is a boundary-pushing pop + “future R&B” artist poised to have a huge career. Armed with new fervor and a pop-trop sensibility, Liana’s sophomore project APT 210 (out thIs Spring) will cement the young talent as a vanguard of her generation. With the release of her first two singles “Ghost” and “People Like Me” ft. Ayo Jay hitting the viral charts w. nearly a million streams on Spotify to date, picked as best song of the week by High Snobiety, TIME Magazine, Nylon and more), Liana’s upcoming project is her best yet. The 5 track EP continues to celebrate Bank$’s unique, saccharine voice, and spotlights her talent for writing infectious melodies + witty lyrics— all laced with shimmering synths and reverberating beats that is quickly becoming her signature sound. As a multi-platinum songwriter with a limitless love for performance, her live show is just as vibrant as her neon green hair. Bank$ is truly a creative force to be reckoned with.
