THE GHOST OF PAUL REVERE
Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's holler-folk band. With a sound built around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, their songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. They use a masterful combination of melody and energy, somewhere between folk and foot-stomping bluegrass, that has already given Ghost shows legendary status. Fans have traveled vast distances from the most remote corners of the country to catch the band as they make an increasingly bigger mark on the Northeast music scene.
The Ghost was formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry. They put the Ghost of Paul Revere together in 2011 with Matt Young. In that short time they have played across the Nation, bringing holler-folk into houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Sean Hoots, Will Dailey, and other nationally touring acts. Their critically acclaimed debut EP, "North", released in the summer of 2012, quickly became one of the best selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. Their first full length album, "Believe", was recorded live with Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and, when released in January 2014, it quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart. It was the best selling local album in Maine and New Hampshire for 10 months straight and continues to be in the top five more than a year later. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater several times, won Best In Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, and were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance International 2015. In 2014, the Ghost of Paul Revere also started their own two day music festival, Ghostland, which will return for its second year in the fall of 2015.
Anna Lombard's debut album, Head Full Of Bells, is a powerful meditation on love, loss and ultimately, redemption. Drawing influence from artists including Aimee Mann and Susan Tedeschi, Head Full Of Bells introduces Lombard as a gifted young singer of impressive strength. Offering intense, emotive and immediately engaging vocal performances that range from the tender, whispered pleas of Confessions to the thunderous, cathartic finale of All For You, Head Full Of Bells is an exhilarating ride that captivates from start to finish.
Sharing stages with the likes of John Fogerty, Ray Lamontagne, Guster, Aaron Neville, John Popper and Rachel Yamagata, Anna Lombard's live performance gives passionate life to her studio precision. A magnetic presence of undeniable charisma, Lombard possesses a heart, soul and swagger that make her not only someone to hear but something to experience. "Head Full of Bells" is available now on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and at all Bull Moose locations.
