We The Ghost
"The membership of We The Ghost has more chemistry than Breaking Bad"- Steve Watkins of the Fort Worth Star Telegram “They” say We The Ghost is post-rock, but what does that mean? Essentially, it means that this decade has ushered in a new sound that is leaving all the previous versions of rock ‘n roll in the past, and We The Ghost is at the forefront of this new musical revolution. Their music brings together the cool of indie rock with the beats of hip-hop, the drowning enthusiasm of dubstep, the funk of reggae, and the forever catchy lyrics and melodies of pop music. Success always begets growth, and that is just what the band did in 2013. They began reaching way beyond Tulsa and took their music to surrounding markets, including performances at SXSW in Austin, TX and co-headlining the Texas State Fair the night of the Red River Rivalry between Oklahoma University and Texas. They also played in Dallas, Oklahoma City and Ft. Smith, AR. March of 2013 brought them the opportunity to open for Imagine Dragons at the University of TuIsa Reynolds Center in front of a sold out crowd of 8,000 screaming students and locals fans. Their crowning achievement came at the end of the year, though, as their new album Sinking Suspicion won 2013 ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR at the L.A. Music Awards at the historic Avalon Theater in Hollywood, CA. When asked about the experience, lead singer Beau Tyler expressed, "It was amazing enough to win band of the year at our local 'Absolute Best of Tulsa' awards, but we never thought we'd win such a high honor on a national scale, let alone even be nominated. We completely lost any element of cool when they announced our name. We all jumped up like 1st graders, screamed, and started hugging each other right there in the audience." Needless to say, We The Ghost was thrilled to be the recipients of this prestigious award on the red carpet in Los Angeles. As a result, their first single off that album, the title track “Sinking Suspicion,” is being played on radio stations all across the U.S.A. The music video for "Sinking Suspicion" has since also been viewed over 50,000 times in only 2 months! Previous awards for We The Ghost have included Best Indie Rock Band, Song of the Year, and Best Male Vocalist at the 2012 Absolute Best of Tulsa Awards, and they won Band of the Year, Album of the Year and Best Male Vocalist (Beau Tyler - 2nd consecutive year) at the 2013 Absolute Best of Tulsa Awards. We The Ghost has always had a great relationship with the media. They have been heard in Tulsa on Z104.5 The Edge, 106.9 K-Hits, 97.5 KMOD, Tulsa Community College Radio, Fox23 Daybreak, Fox23 Great Day Green Country, and KTUL Ch. 8’s Good Day Tulsa. In Oklahoma City, they have performed on KSBI-TV's Oklahoma Live. They also received the cover of the Urban Tulsa Weekly magazine and a feature article in October of 2013. A perfect culmination for a year that started out with We The Ghost being named to the "Top 100 list of people" in their home town editorial. The band has also been busy the last couple of years playing high profile festivals in Oklahoma and around the nation, such as the Center of the Universe Festival, Rocklahoma, Free Tulsa Music Festival, Blue Rose Riverfest, South By Southwest, and Sundance Film Festival. In June of 2013 they had the honor of opening for Paul Banks of Interpol at the historic Cains Ballroom in Tulsa, and then in November for Aranda at the Cancer Sucks Concert. As of January 2014, We The Ghost is ranked on ReverbNation.com’s indie chart as #1 Locally in Tulsa, #20 Nationwide and #26 Globally. This is a band on the rise and there seems to be no stopping their quickly growing popularity. In Spring and summer of 2014 they will be co-headlining the Tulsa Music Festival at Guthrie Green, performing full length concerts on the prestigious Red Bull, Pandora, and Heart of Texas stages at South By Southwest, and later in the year an overseas tour to capitalize on their popularity in England, Indonesia and Poland, among other countries.- Written by Matt Eidson WE THE GHOST is:Beau Tyler - Lead Vocals & Acoustic GuitarJocelyn Rowland - Violin & Backing VocalsDain Samuelson - DjembeJimmy Adams - Drums & Backing VocalsMatt McHan - Lead Guitar & Backing VocalsCalvin Berkenbile - Bass Guitar & Backing Vocals
