The discordant but ultimately alluring sounds that Ghostkeeper produces are a testament to the band’s collective, unfettered creativity. With each album, Ghostkeeper has continued to explore new territory.

At the heart of this Calgary band’s noisy, warped, and compelling sound is the songwriting of Shane Ghostkeeper and Sarah Houle.

Entrusted with Ghostkeeper’s heart are multi-instrumentalist Ryan Bourne and drummer Eric Hamelin, extremely skilled surgeons who help bring the band’s sounds to the outer edges of psychedelic rock.

Underneath and throughout the deliberate cacophony are the lyrics that cut through the surface with one listen, written by witnesses to the Indigenous experience: “There’s no pleasure like golfing on Indian bones.”

This is Calgary represented musically – a modern facade that can’t hide its conflicted history.
