GET TO KNOW KOTA BANKS👇
Australian / Italian artist and songwriter, Kota Banks spent her early teens living in Florence with her family – a formative time that shaped her identity and connection to her heritage. Singing from as early as 9 years of age and now based in Sydney’s north, the 25-year old has been hailed as one of Australia’s best new pop acts.
Signing with NLV Records in May last year, Banks has been working closely with Swick for her forthcoming PRIZE mixtape, as well as her recent singles “Holiday” and “Zoom”. “Holiday” received widespread support from radio across the country, Junkee, Acclaim, Pilerats and more, amassing over a million streams and being lauded as “one of the best pop songs of the year”. Brimming with confidence and oozing attitude, “Zoom” was released in March 2018, passing one million streams in April and was added to full rotation on triple j.
Since the release of Kota’s first single “Empty Streets” featuring MOZA (which has amassed over 18 million streams) and her debut tracks with NLV Records, Banks has toured nationally with FOMO Festival tour, secured triple j high rotation, signed with Mushroom Music publishing & New World Artists and co-penned Australia’s song for 2017 Junior Eurovision.
