Robin Banks: Modern Classic
Title: Modern Classic
Label: CD Baby

Duke Robillard - Producer. Modern Classic was recorded in Rhode Island with The Duke Robillard Band. A master of tone and phrasing, Robin Banks has a vocal style, strength and clarity that has been compared to Etta James and Dinah Washington. But match that with the charisma and boldness of a Tina Turner and you'll understand why Robin Banks has the world on a string! Robin Banks has her roots deeply dug. Born in Canada a mere 50 miles from Detroit, then transplanted to Dallas, and then Jamaica, Banks is a diverse, international artist who is clearly comfortable with Jazz, Classic R&B, Soul, even Reggae. She's often lauded for her captivating live performance, her confident ability to connect and affect each member of her audience, her sincerity and certainly her authenticity. Robin Banks has established herself as a fearless, female force in International Blues circles recording and performing with the likes of Duke Robillard, Doug James and a long list of legendary Texas, West Coast and Chicago musicians. A powerful songwriter as well, Tom Hyslop of Blues Revue Magazine was quoted as saying Banks writes compositions 'that lyrically echo the song craft of Cole Porter and the Gershwins'.  'Robin's got soul, class and most of all good taste!' - Duke Robillard 'I have watched Robin Banks grow as a vocalist, songwriter and performer for many years now. In that time I've seen her master many genres as a vocalist along the way absorbing the essence of each style and making it her own. Whether it be blues, jazz, soul or R&B, Robin's taste and vocal power make her a rare talent. Her songwriting skills show her depth and musical intelligence and the songs on her new CD 'Modern Classic' bring together all her talents in a way that shows her as a major force in roots music.' Duke Robillard  "From the songwriting pen of Robin Banks comes her newest CD - "MODERN CLASSIC". Robin's insightful songs laid out with her sensual voice amid tasty grooves prove musicus perfectus with which to lay on into with the Roomful horns (Doug James, Doug Woolverton and myself). Making this record was a blast. If only all my projects could be this inspiring. Robin Banks is the real deal and this is a Duke Robillard production that I am truly honored and proud to be a part of. "MODERN CLASSIC" does not miss; it is right smack dab on the mark." Mark Earley  'Recording Modern Classic with my friend Robin Banks was too much fun! Robin is a hidden gem from Toronto who deserves much wider recognition! I have never worked with a vocalist who had as much command of musical language and nuance as Robin. It was simply a blast, and the results speak for themselves. I'm proud to have been involved with this recording and I highly recommend that you get your copy straight away! "Crazy" indeed!!' Bruce Bears.
