Formed in 1999 by singer/songwriter Steven Wells, Ghostowne weaves Country-Twang, Southern Rock, Roots-Rock and high octane energy into a unique, new and original package. A sound derivative of blue-collar life.
The songs drip with tequila sweat, and through the timber of Steven’s voice, Allen’s solid bass tones, Joey’s searing guitars and Jeff’s persevering backbeats, lies a quality of emotional extremes relative to peering out a window on a cross-country road trip and seeing different faces all sharing a similar personal struggle.
2011 will brings yet another chapter in the band’s history. The band will be teaming up once again with producer/engineer Matt Winegar (Primus, Slider, Simple Plan. Sparta, Royal Bliss, Geffen, A&M, Interscope) for their 5th full length effort, “American Twang.” Slated for release early summer 2011.
Prior Ghostowne releases such as After The Rain, This Is The Place, Dry County & Dust ‘n Bones, plus numerous compilation appearances show just how diverse this band can be.
Ghostowne has built a devoted following as a result of a relentless work ethic, devil-may-care attitude and performing, performing, performing.
GHOSTOWNE in short are a bunch of restless shit-kickers, always pushing the boundaries of country & rock.
