A CD release, at last! Sweet Ghosts is the project of singer-songwriter Ryan Alfred and vocalist Katherine Byrnes. At once familiar and mysteriously unique, they combine “stunning, unpredictable harmonies” (Tucson Weekly) with a colorful instrumental palette where acoustic folk instruments blend with orchestral touches and subtle Brian Eno-inspired synthesizers, with songs that “sound like late afternoon...when winter's coming” (MySpiltMilk.com).
Their new album, “An Endless Blue”, builds on the foundation of their “gloriously heartwrenching debut” (Zocalo Magazine). Recorded mainly in a single 3 day session with Steven Tracy (St. Cecilia Studios) at the console, the album is built around live takes of the 6 piece band, featuring Angelo Versace (piano), Ben Nisbet (violin), Gabriel Sullivan (bass), and Winston Watson (drums). The result is a warm, colorful album that flows like one complete piece, moving from gentle, contemplative songs to darker, more turbulent moments. Also featured are a string quartet led by Ben Nisbet, and sonic contributions from Karima Walker (electronics) and Mike Moynihan (woodwinds).
