Houston Native Byron Bank – Young Emcee with an Uncompromising Work Ethic
Rapper Byron Bank, born Byron Keith Jones on July 15, started making music at the age of fifteen. Raised in the southeast Houston neighborhood he was inspired by his surroundings. Due in part to being the only man in the household, Bank witnessed his mother’s struggle as a single parent and he used his mother’s pain as motivation. Bank learned to play the trumpet and drums in the high school band, which helped inspire his introduction into loving musicianship. However with the encouragement of his grandmother who purchased his first ever keyboard workstation Byron found his true love for producing music. Byron knew music was his future and felt he had something special to share with the world.
Byron Bank stepped up his lyrical repertoire by honing in his skills as a songwriter by creating catchy hooks and full structured songs to his own production. Byron joined Hip Hop group Uppa Dek soon after which provided him an opportunity to finally showcase his talent for the masses. As the “hottest in the streets” at the time, Bank began to see his own reflection and passion within himself to venture out on his on. Byron’s uncompromising work ethic would not allow him to rest on his more than impressive laurels; there needed to be a ‘visual’ movement to showcase his innovative style and unique persona.
In 2010 the phenomenal young MC, Byron Bank released his freshmen mixtape, Catch Me If You Can. He followed this effort with his sophomore mixtape, Byron Bank, No S in 2011. By 2013, Byron put his new Houston flavor on the map with the album The Withdrawal, which was met with great enthusiasm. Bank’s newest album, Change was released in early 2015 and it has been buzzing ever since.
