For Immediate Release:
July 27, 2012
“Her Ghost,” a new 4-piece rock band from Portland, OR who have been described as Kate Bush “ethereal” meets Beatles pop, launch their music video on their new website today in preparation for the release of their self-titled debut album on August 17th at Secret Society at 9pm in NE Portland.
Their new “Bus Stop Betty” music video exhibits the group’s sound and performance style, featuring lead singer (and Uma Thurman look alike), Danielle Ross, in a throwback 50s setting. The video also features local actors and dancers, and is the product of many accomplished artists in the Portland community, including: Directing/Producing team Carl & Sharon Jameson (“The Bicyclist” series), choreographer Tere Mathern (Conduit Dance), and Mike Barber (creator of the critically-acclaimed dance movement, “Ten Tiny Dances”). You can see the video here: http://herghost.net/videos/bus-stop-betty-music-video/
The video is a taste of what people will experience at Her Ghost’s CD Release Event, which features the 4-piece band, as well as opener Patti King, and other special guests. Her Ghost’s debut self-titled album is unique in that it features only its original collaborators, Singer/Songwriter, Danielle Ross, and Arranger/Producer Todd Bayles. Danielle sings lead and harmony vocals on the album, and Todd plays 18 instruments. The album was written, recorded, and produced in Portland, and it was mixed by Patrick Brewer (Dorado, Jacob Merlin, Blue Iris) and mastered by Ryan Foster Mastering (Storm Large, Lifesavas, Amelia).
