Miss Robin Banks

”Robin Banks is one of the top 20 female voices in Canada” Virgil Scott - Facebook

“Robin's got soul, class and most of all good taste!” Duke Robillard - Facebook

“Robin sings with a simple coolness that can break your heart and still make you beg for more” Teddy Leonard Guitarist

“ You never forget your first time you hear her, mine was at brunch with the obligatory live music, but when robin banks opened her mouth, my head twirled. I knew this was different - special - soulful - connected. Robin hits the notes, the feeling, the emotion, and you can feel the jazz greats channeling through her, to keep the sound alive . . . and she does! ” Seveen Jaja - Facebook

“Although her timbre is light, Banks’ pitch is fine, and she adjusts her delivery to fit the song, whether it’s the not-so-subtle come-hither call “I Just Want My Legs Around You” or “Cocktail or Beer”, an airy confection that lyrically echoes the song craft of Cole Porter and the Gershwins, Banks is downright sultry trading lines with Dozzler on the exotic “No More” and, backed by electric piano on the funky, upbeat “Livin’ Life”, sexy and self assured. When she’s really feeling it, as on the party-anthem boogie “Everybody Let’s Dance”, Banks sounds very much like Marcia Ball.” Tom Hyslop - Blues Revue Magazine
