Paul Banks Biography
Paul Julian Banks, best known as lead singer + lyricist & guitarist of the Alternative-Rock band Interpol, was born on May 3, 1978, in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, ENGLAND. He moved around as a child from England to Michigan and later attended New York University to study English and Comparative Literature.
He finally steps fully out from behind his Julian Plenti alter-ego on his second solo album, 2012's "Banks". The disc, which was recorded in New York and Connecticut, is both personal and epic, catchy and serpentine with the artist's wry humor, bare emotion and varied influences all in full effect. It reached #175 on The Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
