Olaide Banks Releases Debut Album
By: MPR Consulting
"The name of the album is "All The Colors" because it has a range of musical styles and sounds, so the idea was to create something diverse and colorful. There is some reggae, acoustic soul, Latin fusion and smooth contemporary. The different styles are used to convey different emotions and hopefully it all comes together to paint one picture and tell one story." - Olaide Banks
Self produced by Olaide himself, this must have musical offering "All The Colors" features 12 tracks boasting the sounds of Michael "MEGAHBASS" Fletcher, illustrious saxophonist Dean Fraser, renowned drummer Kirk Bennett, iconic multi talented musician Benjy Myaz among a host of notable instrumentalists, as well as a powerful collaborations with Olaide Bank's father, reggae luminary Bankie Banks!

"The album doesn't fit into any one sound genre. The sound I was looking for is authentic and timeless. I wanted a warm sound that would remind people of the sound of soul, folk, gospel and reggae music in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. I wanted to create a sound that would give the listener the feel of putting on a vinyl record and listening to it with people they love." - Olaide Banks
A well crafted, catchy, smooth reggae and soul music album, "All The Colors" is a deeply meaningful album that will tap into what makes the listener hold on to a song... mainly it's vulnerability, transparency, and maturity that is rare at this moment.
"My inspiration for the album was a new lease I have on life. Being able to savor the moments. I had one concept for an album just before the pandemic, then everything changed. A month before the pandemic I had a health scare that made me rethink my life. That became my inspiration and that is how my faith is reflected in this work." - Olaide Banks
