The Symphonic Alternative band, Ghost Tribe Fires, pulses with poetic lyrics placed upon haunting keys against a modern beat. They implement the use of a stripped-down drum kit, driving piano, bare bass guitar and exposed lyrics and vocals. The piano, bass, drums, and vocals build the composition but there is also an interweaving of synths and guitars that give the songs electronic symphonic vibe.
Founding members Jon Veitch (multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, and vocals) and Liz Downs (drums and vocals) started gigging in 2011 while doing small tours up and down the West Coast and also played in Austin, Texas during SXSW. In 2013, Tyler Hewett (Vocals and Piano) was asked to join, positively shifting the band's focus towards the piano.
Going forward, Ghost Tribe Fires will have live guest appearances by other notable musicians in the northwest music community.
Ghost Tribe Fires collaborated with producer Jon Goff of "Self-Adhesive Records," and will soon release a single and music video in Fall of 2014, directed by Brad Strain of "Scared of Genre Films." In early 2015 Ghost Tribe Fires will release their debut EP.
