A deep anxiety took hold of Sam Gillbanks. A story told by too many of the newly graduated youth: no job, no money, no future. Still no inkling into what he really wanted, he ventured into a labyrinth of dreamscaping, guitar playing, and songwriting and found a release of residual energy and captive ideas of his own making. These were not adopted. These were his ideas.
He took his guitar and his voice and burrowed in the coastal town of Falmouth until he surfaced with a host of songs as GILLBANKS. Aided by the infallible Hugo Heaverman on drums and with the self realized dream of giving the world their own creation; 5a 5 song EP under Lend Me Your Skin followed and spawned the interest of many a keen eye. GILLBANKS dreamt of writing songs for the wicked, for the useless, for the kings of us. The ones who both know what they want and don’t know who they are, we are all guilty of falling into those well trodden paths and GILLBANKS want you to know that you can tread theirs.Listen
