Bio/History: Donovan Howard of KHVN remarks without hesitation, 'The album is awesome and I don't say that lightly.' A vibrant, effervescent young man by the name of Desmond Banks, aka DEZ, has set his goals toward incorporating music of today with a positive message of Christ's Salvation to the world with his debut CD from Fella-Ship Productions, 'The Prodigal Son'. As an experienced vocalist and musician, Dez plays myriad instruments from acoustical to electrical to a synthesizer keyboard. The aura he creates was exemplified when he opened for Boyz To Men and A Few Good Men. He has produced five albums in the secular market under the inspiration of rhythm and blues performer, Babyface. In the gospel hip hop market, he has produced one album titled 'I Don't Wanna Die...Not Knowing'. He single handedly arranges the music and creates a setting that can capture the sound of a background vocalist group. Dez's skillful craftsmanship and fluid musicianship combines the driving beat of contemporary R&B with some of the most beautiful acoustic melodies. He renders heartfelt testimonials and declarations of God's omnipotent power in his own inimitable way and produces spiritual exhilaration that entangles the audience in praise and worship.
