Ghost Light

Ghost Light is a true musical collaboration; five personalities, five perspectives, and five unique approaches towards one common sound.

Bucking conventional tradition, rather than initially focusing on live shows, the band played together for the first time in a recording studio in Philadelphia. This decision gave the band’s members - Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen and Scotty Zwang - the ability to come to the project with fresh ears and no pre-conceived notions. They developed the songs as they developed their musical communication which led to trust, creativity and an adventurous take on the process. Scotty Zwang explained it thusly, “It’s a unique and interesting approach we get to take...” “we are being patient with each other and figuring out what the song needs”

While the recording project has been the beginning point for Ghost Light, the live experience is what will define this band. “In the parts of the sessions where we have had a little more room to just let things go, there have been these little glimmers of what the improvisation will feel like live. That’s a whole other thing and it’s very exciting,” notes Holly Bowling. Tom Hamilton adds, “with this new band, we felt super comfortable going in any direction, knowing that with our new bandmates, the songs will get to where they needs to go. And in the live setting, that confidence is just as strong.”

Mr. E & the Stringless Kite

August 9th is the album release party show for Mr. E & the Stringless Kite, a progressive folk rock quintet from right here Omaha!! Joining MESK are local stalwarts Fontenelle and Doom Lagoon, likely making this the most progressive local show of 2019. Craig Mustard will be adding to the visual experience of the show with his lighting and projection expertise!!

"Siren Songs" is the second album from the band, following 2018's "Seeds." It is an even more progressive collection of songs than the debut album, and the flow is imagined as a whole 75+ piece of music.

Blending influences from the 60s/70s greats in psychedelic, folk, country, and prog rock with modern lyrics and creative touches makes Mr. E a truly unique band. You can expect intricate vocal harmonies and instrumental arrangements, along with tastefully placed improv jams!!
