Liverpool native BANNERS brings his hauntingly beautiful style to the Capital Region this Sunday, March 6, performing at The Hollow in Albany, brought in by WEQX. The singer-songwriter Michael Joseph Nelson started his career under the stage name Raines and a few months later changed to BANNERS, right before his song “Shine A Light” appeared on the soundtrack of the the video game FIFA 16.
BANNERS is included on Spotify’s Spotlight list for 2016, a list that alerts listeners to 15 up-and-coming artists. The Island Records recording artist has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and is making his debut in the US on this tour. He will be supported by opening act Better By Morning, a band native to Saratoga Springs, NY. Tickets can be purchased at the door or by going to Ticketfly. The show starts at 8 pm.
