Banners’ songs have an anthemic, ecclesiastical quality. They’re haunting and inspiring, effervescent and relatable.
As if stirring to life, the music of BANNERS ascends towards steeple-size heights lifted by front-man Michael Nelson’s dynamic delivery and exquisite songcraft as well as the robust presence and impressive instrumental chops of his band.
Since emerging in 2015, BANNERS has quietly carved out a place within the zeitgeist, clocking nearly 1 billion total streams while stand out track “Some One To You” has taken the world by storm accumulating over half a billion streams alone. “Someone to You” is uplifting and universal, with elements that call to Mumford and Sons and Ed Sheeran. It’s magnetic and warm, capturing the simple pleasures of falling in love, while maintaining the thought-provoking choral components that define the BANNERS sound.
The track, which swiftly crawled up the 2020 charts at radio and Spotify, has also made its mark on TikTok with hundreds of thousands of videos made on the platform “Someone to You” also made strides on television and has been featured in America’s Got Talent, T-Mobile’s recent commercial, American Idol, as well as in the Love, Victor trailer and was featured on the soundtrack for After. “There are certain songs that become the soundtrack to a specific time in your life,” Mike says. “If BANNERS’ music can become the soundtrack to a moment for one person, that would be the dream for me. That would make me so happy.”
