Byron Keith Jones was born on July 15th, in Houston, Texas. Byron records under the alias Byron Bank, who is known as a Houston recording artist and producer. He started his career at a young age by using several instruments without any previous musical lessons. Byron then began to entertain his peers from rapping on the school bus, to participating in school talent shows, to joining in his high school band. Later, he picked up a trumpet and later moved on to becoming lead drummer of the drumline. As his love for music grew, Byron's grandmother purchased his first keyboard and from there the journey began. In March 2009, Byron released his first album, "An End of the Beginning". The album featured a positive, inspirational hip-hop song that inspires one to keep their dream and never give up. "Never Runaway", became the first debuted song off his freshman album. In July 2010, with a successful response to his January 2010 released mixtape, "Catch Me If You Can", Bank drops yet another mixtape, "Why Did I Get Married Too (The Game)". Still at this very day, some may argue that "Why Did I Get Married Too (The Game)", should've been an album. In November 2010, Bank replies by announcing the release of his sophomore album, "Passion Has A Price". In April 2011 Bank, along side with Kasino Brown, drops the promotional project, "Byron Bank, No S", due to the anticipation of this sophomore album, which is now complete and scheduled to drop June 2011. Byron has worked with community based organizations such as: March of Dimes for the March of Babies, Houston's YMCA for Healthy Kid's Day and Good Cause 4 Good People (GC4GP) fundraising event in Austin for Austin Children's Shelter & Safe Place. He constantly performs in and out of town at various venues for showcases, events, public/private parties, etc. Byron, with the Houston based rap group Uppa Dek, has opened up for several artists such as Devin the Dude, The Coughee Brothers and B.E.TÃ¢ÂÂs Scream Concert with headliners Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Neyo, and Juelz Santana. Byron mixes, records, and produces for several artists in the United States.
