On July 15, 1981, Byron Keith Jones Jr., also known as Byron Bank was born and raised in Houston, Tx. Being the only man in the household, Byron set out with great ambitions to make a name for himself. Starting from school talent shows to joining in the high school band, Byron played the trumpet and later moved to being the lead drummer of the drumline. Shortly afterwards, he received his first keyboard from his grandmother which helped build the foundation of what he loves to do today. Now as he grows to greatness, he tapped into many more talents becoming a producer, songwriter, true hip-hop artist, and engineerer wrapped into one.
Along with four of his childhood friends, Byron and them formed a rap group named, "Uppa Dek", and dropped their first album, "Da Nosebleed Section". This album gave Byron a chance to show his skills as a producer and rapper. Even though "Da Nosebleed Section" didnt get the credit deserved, it still holds dear to Byron. It helped him see what he was missing within himself and more. Seeing this self-reflection gave him the incentive to work harder and give more dedication. In March 2009, "An End of the Beginning" was released as Byron's first solo album. Believing that the music in his era was at a stand still, he decided to show it change. With that said he dropped his first single, "Never Runaway", a hip-hop anthem that inspires one not to give up and keep going. Much like the song, Byron pushed himself where he is today. This album displays the deeper side of Byron Bank, as far as relationships, his daily struggles, and just life itself. Then in August 2009, he released a mixtape titled " B.E.T (Bank Entertainment Televised)" which was a compilation of his fluential flows on tracks from other artists in and out of the industry. From mixing, mastering, writing, and producing, Byron has earned the title of being a "one man show" and a "man with no fear".
Knowing that there's more to accomplish in his career, Byron still shows that not only does he have the passion for music, but the drive to be in comparison to his favorite producers, Timbaland and Kanye West. Citing Jay-Z as being his most influential rapper, Byron dreams and hopes to meet him someday. With the wisdom of his grandmother and support of his family and fans, Byron has definately feels that he is making a name for himself. With that said he quotes, "Being Byron Bank is a dream, and this dream is a mission."
