FESTIVAL PREVIEW: WHO TO SEE AT BUCKLE & BOOTS 2024 - JAZMINE HONEY BANKS

Buckle & Boots has a habit of unearthing future talents, but rarely has someone quite been thrust into the limelight like the exotically named Jazmine Honey Banks. With only six singles to her name and three of those from over five years ago it might seem foolish to highlight this set however there is enough evidence to suggest if all goes well and she plays to her strengths then this may just kick start her career to another level.

JAZMINE HONEY BANKS

Her biggest tune to date is 2020's "Holding Out" which is initially built around a neat guitar line before exploding into something of a rocking anthem. which could potentially get the Buckle and Boots audience to find their singing voices.


2019's "Seventeen" starts to a strumming guitar like a sweeter voiced Billy Bragg - surely a complement that has not been paid in her direction before!! - It turns into a punchy little rocker, with vocals that I'm sure she would do much better now but here at #TEAMw21 we quite like the rawness on this version.


Her vocals a year later on "Don't Be Late" are high pitched ad polished on this delightful little country number. As her voice rises through the scale she adds a little class to the track.

"Seventeen" from 2019 starts to a cracking electric guitar refrain before it becomes something of a country rocker. It has a rootsy rock feel at times that should go down with the crowd at Buckle & Boots, replete with an electric guitar solo.


in a change of pace - 2019's soulful country of "Home" shows a different side to Jazmine altogether. She relishes the big choruses and does a great job on both lead and backing vocals. Our research also found the more acoustic "My Deja Vu" which showed great promise, yet to emerge in a recorded format.

The only cause for concern we have is the most recent single 2023's "Seven Steps" which we'll have to put down to an aberration and blame the producer for the cheesy disco beat and cheap string sound that really does Jazmine few favours.


Her repertoire of country covers includes all the standards "Girl Crush", a very good version of Maren Morris's "My Church" and a slightly rocky "Jolene" which would surely endear her to the Buckle & Boots crowd especially if she's the first to get them in across the weekend!


As we've yet to see Jazmine in the flesh we did reach out to someone who had - Talentbanq Supremo, Ray Jones who is a keen promoter of unsigned artists in the live environment - his feedback ""Jazmine has incredible stage presence and chemistry live. Hers will be a set not to miss at Buckle and Boots. A lady on the rise !"


BUCKLE & BOOTS 2024

Buckle & Boots 2024 may come too early for "Sweet days of summer" however we full expect Jazmine Honey Banks to bloom!
