Ghost of the Robot
ABOUT THE BAND
Ghost of the Robot are a California-based rock band that has performed to sold-out crowds in major cities across the United States and Europe. Comprised of musicians with unique skills and diverse backgrounds, the band’s sound ranges from driving rock to upbeat pop, soulful blues and jazz to foot-stomping country. Live shows have certain surprises like a Queen/Super Mario Bros. mash-up. Among the original band members are James Marsters (vocals/guitar), Charlie De Mars (guitar/vocals) and Kevin McPherson (bass). Rounding out the group are Sullivan Marsters (guitar/vocals) and Jordan Latham (drums).
The band recorded two albums, Mad Brilliant (2003) and B-Sider (2004), before going on hiatus in 2005. They reunited in October 2010 at the very club in Santa Monica where they had played their first show followed by the release of their studio album Murphy’s Law (2012),and a European Tour. Ghost of the Robot has continued to develop their sound. James Marsters adds, “The other thing about this new incarnation is that I’m very excited about Charlie singing his songs… We’ve always had the Beatles as a touchstone; the Beatles had no real lead singer but passed around lead vocals… And so when we’re all singing together, it’s really hard to tell who’s who. It really mixes beautifully.”
Since 2013 they’ve played clubs and music festivals in Sacramento, Portland, San Diego, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Atlanta, and concerts that were streamed live from studios in Lake Tahoe and Sacramento, CA, to fans all over the world.
Ghost of the Robot has four albums to their credit. Alongside the latest Murphy’s Law and Bourgeois Faux Pas, they’ve re-released their earlier albums Mad Brilliant and B-Sider. They are currently in the studio creating their fifth album Pair of Bulls Part 1.
Ghost of the Robot music is available through iTunes, Amazon, and their webstore.
