WHAT IT IS: Liverpool native Mike Nelson (aka Banners) is fascinated by dreams, life, death, hope and despair. He grew up singing in the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral Choir, singing in cathedrals and concert halls across Europe.

Earlier this year, Banners released “Ghosts” and “Shine a Light,” both of which charted Top 5 on HypeMachine.
