"Songwriter Paul Banks is another Austin force to be reckoned with . . . His favorite songwriter is Paul Simon, but Banks' voice has supreme range. He can go from sounding like a folk-singer Strokes frontman to a gorgeous Roy Orbison to stripped down Muse. There is an epic sweep to Banks' songs . . ."
-San Antonio Express News, Show Review
"The perfect swell to ring against de Ville’s rock grotto, local songsmith Paul Banks and his Carousels quartet build mesmerizing pop wrought with vocals that split the difference between Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley."
-The Austin Chronicle, Show Recommendation
"Soaring and dare I say angelic vocal stylings, which easily split the difference between Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. I’d be lying if I said I’m not absolutely floored by this man’s singing, and I have yet to hear a sour note leave his lips . . . His band was quite impressive as well, they not only played well but managed to keep up with Banks’ vocal acrobatics with flawless harmonies."
-Whoopsy Magazine, Show Review
"...managed to put together eight tracks that confidently tell their stories with a charm and melodies that stick in your head. I've been whistling "Live to Share" for a week now, and I'm okay with that."
