Starting as simply a creative musical outlet for singer Michael Grissinger, Chasing Ghosts became something a bit larger than originally planned. Within months of forming, the band released a full length CD entitled "We are All Paintings" under the band name Loss of an Artist. With many changes in the roster, and a bigger and more optimistic future planned, the band decided to change the name as well as take a break from live shows to write and record new material under the new name.
Chasing Ghosts, is music and art written about the hopes, dreams, and lack thereof in everyday life. Its the strive to be something more creative and ever evolving. Settling just isnt what were about. We hope you enjoy the music. Essentially, its written for you.
"We Are All Paintings" offers songs that are beautifully crafted to the alternative rock genre of todays standards. Even though the group doesnt have a label backing them, the album was mastered by the same people who mastered artists such as Alicia Keys, Evergreen Terrance, FICK, and Yellowcard, so expect nothing less than a major label sounding album. The CD artwork was provided by Stephanie Tyler who has quiet amazing art. All the songs on the album were written by Loss of an Artist, now Chasing Ghosts and performed as the following: Michael - Vocals, Piano, Drums, Programming - Harrison - Guitar, programming on "An Interlude" and Justin - Bass.
The group fits well into the likes of Copeland, Lovedrug and Sleeping At Last, showing off their eerie alternative rock sounds with the melodic, yet subtle hooks. A great purchase if you are into any of those bands to add another great addition to your collection. These guys stand out of the indie genre and would be a great addition to say The Militia Group or another bigger indie label.
Probably one of the best small-time indie bands out there. It seems like all the music has been coming out of florida lately! I bought this CD when they had it on pre-order and was really impressed since the day I got it, and have enjoyed it ever since.
Chasing Ghosts Rocks!
This really is a fantastic CD! They quickly became one of my favorite bands!
This CD is awesome. Everyone should buy it. That is all.
