Sweet Ghosts is a colorful new Folk/Americana band from Tucson, AZ, lead by songwriter Ryan Alfred and singer Katherine Byrnes.
While both are seasoned musicians in their own right (Ryan tours the world with Calexico as a bassist, and Katherine sang harmonies
on Amos Lee's Mission Bell tour), it's the music they make together that convinced them it was time to make an album and go on the road.
(Formerly Sam Doores + Riley Downing & the Tumbleweeds) New Orleans-based country-soul,
swamp-boogie band. They combine elements of early Stax, Sun and Atlantic records with the
influence of a more raw, stripped-down sound gleaned off field recordings from Alan Lomax
and Mississippi Records catalogue.
(Singer/cellist/improviser based in New Orleans, Louisiana)
