Penn State Student Embarks on Journey as Recording Artist
As a singer, rapper, an upcoming recording artist, Penn State Student Rohan James, better known by his stage name "Kayden Bank$", can truly do it all. James began his musical journey throughout his childhood, singing and performing as part of his school's chorus and choir groups. James perfected his craft as a "bass", singing the deepest and lowest notes music has to offer. Through this experience, he grew his confidence on stage and his abilities as a singer, and music has been an important aspect of his life ever since.
Fast forward to present day and James is working on his first ever album and official project release "Slimey Road EP". He recently dropped his first music video, "No Cap", where his talents were put on display and shared to the world. James creates hip-hop based music but with a focus on singing and harmonized choruses, creating a unique sound that is rarely found within rap songs.
James' second music video is set to release in April, and his debut album shortly after that.
