Drawing inspiration from the R’n’B, Country Rock and Americana bands of the 60s and 70s, The Holy Ghosts are a five-piece band from Edinburgh playing Rock n' Roll/Country, with a dash of the Blues, and a unique twist of Scottish modern life.
Known for their for the exciting live shows featuring spine tingling three part harmonie, razor sharp guitars, wailing harmonica, honky tonk piano, and their charismatic stage presence, the band was voted 'Best Newcomer' at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards in 2013.
Since then the band has been making an impact on the Scottish music scene with festival slots up and down the country, playing to sold out crowds at the HMV Picture House, sharing the stage with The Proclaimers at Heb Celt Festival, and supporting Alabama 3 at Glasgow's 02 Academy.
With Scottish producers Garry Boyle (Broken Records, The Banana Sessions and Stanley Odd) and Owen Morris (Oasis, The View) at the helm, the band recorded their first EP "Devil On Your Side" in 2012, and followed that with a second EP "Voodoo Shakedown" in 2013.
Their debut full length album, "Ride Them Down", was released in 2014, and recorded their third EP, "End of the World and Other Multifarious Destinations" with with Robin Wynn Evans (Manic Street Preachers), released in March 2015. The band will start work on their second full length album with a return to France in November.
