National Ghost was formed in 2006, comprised of members from various prominent Detroit acts. The idea was to throw these musicians in a room, most of whom had never met each other, and see what came out. Within a few months the line up solidified and National Ghost was born.

Their music is eclectic and original; rich vocal harmonies rounded out by well-thought arrangements, and top notch instrumentation. Careful and well executed, yet open and boundless at times, the band strives to forge new ground with nods to the elders as well. Each musician brings their unique background and ideas into the fold. They write about everything; conspiratorial reptiles, loving tributes to both heroes and foes, and ice cream. They bring ambitious, unfettered enthusiasm to each song they play as their set smoothly glides from melodic rock to sonic groove and beyond.

‘a stew that features exquisite harmonies and excellent songwriting as core ingredients.’
