Ghost Town Gospel / Bio

An acoustic trio from the fabled "Ghost Town" warehouse district of Oakland, California, Ghost Town Gospel brings their aggressive brand of melodic folkpunk to the masses. Like high-energy, foot-stompin' music? Strap on your boots and grab your flask. It's time to dance.

Relentless performers, they can be spotted entertaining crowds in bars, clubs, coffee shops, theaters, art festivals, poetry slams, subway platforms, street fairs, campfires, moving vehicles and anywhere they drag their instruments.


Josh: The primary songwriter and lead vocalist, shreds guitars with utter disregard for the safety of himself and others. With a degree in music from Sonoma State, he is a veteran of the East Bay Hardcore scene. He is also an avid outdoorsman and survivalist, and can grow a mean beard.

Miss Roach: When not playing squeezebox with GTG, she can be found playing in backyards across the US with the sprawling non-band "Jerk Church", or baking up vegan treats in her kitchen at home.

Ryan- plays a mean fiddle, like woah.

Anthony- When he's not playing standup bass he's the director of a theatre camp for young people.
