Justin Bank

Background: "A computer will help you get good grades, but a guitar will get you great groupies," Bank's uncle told him when he was 15. Over the 20 year career that's followed, the singer/songwriter has played in Little Rock bands like SFZ, Free Love Virgins and the Royal Electric. In Colorado, he played with a roots rock band called the Beauregards.

Albums: A 1996 solo album called "Beauregard," named for a nickname Bank's grandfather gave him as a child and comprised of songs Bank wrote will living in New York and France. Coming up, a new album, half acoustic and half electric to be released through Upperworks.

Sounds like: Alt-country-tinged singer/songwriter material. "Wry observations on love, usually with tongue planted firmly in cheek," Bank says.

Showcase accompaniment: Nick Devlin, the acclaimed local guitarist.

Music:

"San Francisco"

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
