By: Laurie Gallardo

Moody Bank$‘ connection to old-school R&B came from the music she listened to with her mother. But writing and performing music wasn’t something she saw herself doing until she left California to move to Austin, where she met – and was inspired by – music artists following their creative paths. All of this culminated with the release of her debut EP Full Blunts & Full Moons three and a half years ago, illuminating a renewed interest in pursuing a musical career. Despite a long pause due to COVID, Bank$’ rejuvenated focus led to the recording of the EP Feeling Colors.

A possible tour looms on the horizon, but this week you can catch Moody Bank$ at her new musical residency at Firehouse Lounge starting tonight, Thursday Nov. 3. Bank$ will be there each Thursday night throughout November. The music starts at 9 p.m.
