Hailing from Liverpool, BANNERS (more commonly known to friends and family as Mike Nelson) recently moved to Toronto to start writing sublime pop songs. AMBY always likes to be at the forefront of a great thing, and as soon as we had a glimpse of BANNERS’ shimmering single Shine A Light, we could tell this artist is definitely destined for something great. While at Cylinder Sound Studios to witness an intimate performance of BANNERS’ new tracks from his forthcoming EP release, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Nelson for an exclusive interview. Watch his first-ever Canadian interview as we discuss stalking himself on Spotify, favourite writing spots, getting told off at the CN Tower, and our love of The Beatles.
