Biography

West Bank, a reggae pop group out of New Jersey is taking 2009 as their year to shine. The self-managed group normally writes and produces their songs incorporating a mixture of hip hop, R & B, reggae and even jazz in their technique giving them a unique sound, but this year they are stepping outside of their normal routine with their latest provocative titled single, "Swing That." The group has taken a new approach by recording this single for Jamaican producer/artist Benzly Hype who created the hot new beat called the "Amazon Rhythm" which is unusual for them as they typically do music with their own beats.

The group traveled to Jamaica during December 2008 to film the video for "Swing That." The video, which is expected to be premiered on stations in Jamaica within another month, will feature faces familiar to the Jamaican and International dance hall scene including creative producer/artist Benzly Hype of the former group Innocent Crew. It will also feature the innovative dance crew Sample Six who have been consistently awarded "dancers of the year" for the past four years in Jamaica. Another face, or rather talent to look out for in the video is Mr. Caribbean International 2008, Marlon "Face" Birbridge who will definitely provide a quick peak of some eye candy for the ladies. This single comes fully loaded and will certainly become addictive just after listening to it once.

Their spicy single is expected to be a true club banger displaying the group's versatility in doing songs of varying styles in comparison to their still buzzing single "Never Find Another." Fans fell in love with "Never Find Another" after it premiered on the program Video Alley which is aired on Caribbean International Network (CIN), among other stations in Jamaica,New York and England. As their first official single, the song gave the group enough buzz to earn them a spot at number seven on the Reggae Top Ten Charts of Video Alley.

Their debut album entitled, Initial Deposit which includes their first single, "Never Find Another" is available on all popular online sources including rhapsody, napster, eMusic, Groupie Tunes, Amazon MP3, iTunes and now CD Baby. For a more personal look, you can keep informed by visiting them at www.westbankmusic.net or www.myspace.com/westbankgroup where you will have the opportunity to view the video for "Swing That" before it hits the stations.
