Ghost of Paul Revere

Born of the waters of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine’s holler-folk band. Building their songs around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, The Ghost draws from a broad array of influences including Elmore James and the Beatles, to Tom Waits and more. The Ghost writes powerful songs, built on melody and energy, designed to be performed with passion. From folk to foot-stomping bluegrass, the songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. Their live show has quickly attained legendary status, with fans traveling unholy distances from the most remote corners of Maine to catch the band on their way up. The Ghost was formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry. They put the Ghost of Paul Revere together in 2011 with Matt Young. In that short time they have played from Fort Kent to New York City in everything from houses, churches, music halls, and even sailboats. Their critically acclaimed debut EP, “North,” was recorded in late 2011, released in the summer of 2012, and quickly became one of the best-selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. In August 2013, the group went into the studio with Jonathan Wyman to record their first full length album, “Believe,” which was released in January 2014 and quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart and continues to be the best-selling local album in Maine.
