BANNERS, fronted by the dynamic delivery and exquisite song craft of Michael Nelson, has released his debut album, Where the Shadow Ends via Island Records. The album includes recently released collaboration with Young Bombs “Where The Shadow Ends,” as well as fan favorite “Got It In You,” which has amassed over 20 million YouTube streams, and brand new track “No One Knows Us” ft. newcomer Carly Paige. BANNERS’ is currently on a 5-week headline tour across the U.S. and Canada which opened last month and wraps October 23rd.
BANNERS' Michael Nelson says: "I think releasing an album is like a great big diary entry of your thoughts and feelings and influences, the person you've become and the places you were, when you wrote and recorded it. I love that this is the snapshot of me right now because I'm really proud of it. I hope it represents a new person and I hope everyone likes it. All these songs mean an awful lot to me and I'm so happy to be putting them out there."
Earlier in 2019, BANNERS released “Got It In You” and was heard on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy extending BANNERS’ astounding track record of licenses in countless movies and television shows. Along the way, BANNERS has toured with the likes of Milky Chance and POP ETC, and performed on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! and American Idol. Influenced by artists ranging from Jeff Buckley to Arcade Fire, BANNERS is fascinated by dreams, life, death, hope and despair. The results are a musical landscape that is at once haunting and hopeful, as it resonates with audiences across space and age.
