"Weary Pilgrim starts with a preserved introduction that doesn’t allow you to anticipate what’s going to follow throughout the sweet duration of this Soul-full rock track.
Whack up the volume and indulge in the Old School funk of The Zombies and the contemporary shine of The Black Keys. As you’d expect from a band of this genre they graciously indulge you in on point guitar styling with bone rattling riffs and chord progression so heavy that your head will spin." - A&R Factory
The Banisters are a soulful rock band from Austin, Texas. The five-piece started in the summer of 2015 as Dean Curran and Chris DeSilva met as middle school teachers. The songwriting core was rounded out with the addition of Nicole Hutchins, and the trio recruited a drummer to begin blending their punk, blues, and soul influences. Jonny Thompson joined on bass in early 2016 and The Banisters played dozens of shows and released their debut EP in the fall of 2016. With the departure of their original drummer, the rhythm section is now filled out by Ian Benjamin on drums. The Banisters released their second EP, Piñon Vista, in September 2017 and are currently working on their first full-length album set to release later this year.
