Single Review: Olaide Banks – “Story of My Life”

Olaide Banks makes the best of life as an artist, worship leader, and pastor. Back in 2011, the Houston, Texas-based singer/songwriter accepted the latter position and has kept true to his form seven years onward. A testament to his success, Banks’ ministry, One Worship, has a national and international presence, with branches established in the United States, Caribbean, and Africa. Regarding the efficacy of worship, he states, “Worship is not just a temporary escape from the world around us. “[It] is one of the gifts that God has given us to break down the walls that stand between His people, and their God-given destiny.” Indeed, Banks continues to follow this path with boundless tenacity.

His latest single, “Story of My Life,” centers on keeping such tenacity alive and burning. The song’s main melody is of a tender acoustic register, with sparse notes of accentuation throughout. Banks’ soulful vocal tonality complements the melody’s brightness, and blends well within the context of the instrumentation. The song’s message rings wholly poignant, Banks striving toward a sliver of hope through scars and especial spiritual doubt. Its warm harmonies in the chorus work to bring that message full-circle, adding a layer of rawness that can be fully understood, regardless of one’s level of faith.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
