The Ghost Of Paul Revere
The Ghost Of Paul Revere
“Mumford & Sons meet the Avett Brothers with a twist of bluegrass. Old Crow Medicine Show
with three-part harmonies. The Band for millennials… The Maine-grown, foot-stompin’ holler-folk
quartet create the type of music for which festivals are made.” - The Boston Globe
Born on the banks of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere
is Maine's holler-folk band. A powerful, energetic, non-traditional American folk band that’s
renowned for harmony fueled, heart-pounding performances full of songs with unique identities
that remain undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere.
Formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry, joined
by Matt Young on harmonica, the Ghost of Paul Revere played their first show together in 2011
at a tiny bar in Portland, Maine. Now, they play across the nation, bringing holler-folk into
houses, bars, and music halls. They have shared the stage with the Avett Brothers, The
Travelin’ McCourys, Brown Bird, Spirit Family Reunion, Darlingside, as well as members of
Greensky Bluegrass, the Infamous Stringdusters, and Old Crow Medicine Show.
Their critically acclaimed, Billboard charting full length album Believe, as well as their two
EPs North and Field Notes Vol. 1, have continually been the top selling local albums in Maine
and New Hampshire for more than four years. The Ghost of Paul Revere has since sold out Port
City Music Hall, Stone Mountain Arts Center, and the Strand Theater multiple times, won Best In
Maine at the 2014 New England Music Awards, were an official showcase artist at Folk Alliance
International 2015 and made their Newport Folk Festival debut in August 2015. They capped off
2015 with an electrifying headline performance on New Year's eve at Portland's State Theatre in
front of 1,600 enraptured fans.
In 2016, amidst touring nationally, they returned to the studio to craft their second full
length album, engineered by Jonathan Wyman at Halo Studios and mastered by Adam Ayan of
Gateway Mastering. The album is expected to be released in early 2017.
"Robustly played, masterful amalgamation of bluegrass, folk, and gospel for the Millennial
Generation... The Ghost of Paul Revere prove that superior roots music can come from
anywhere." - No Depression
"Simply put, this band is one to see live... A gorgeous blend of bluegrass, folk and good old
fashioned rock and roll... their performance takes on a boot-clacking brilliance that transforms
each song into a full-on participatory event, sending an electric surge about the room that’s near
impossible not to feel. Add to that a layered three part harmony coursing through each soulful
song, and The Ghost of Paul Revere demonstrated they not only had the chops, but the heart to
reach their audience and leave an undeniable impression as well. As the floorboards shook with
each pounding stomp, one thing was certain: the band announced they had arrived, loud and
clear." - Dispatch Magazine
"Simply put North is an album that shouldn't be missed. (It will) make even the most callous of
individuals feel the unbridled joy of Holler-Folk." - Ear to the Ground Music
"A distinguished sound that only seasoned musicians can usually attain" - Portland Press Herald
"(The Ghost of Paul Revere) stole the show. I was so impressed with them. Their harmonies,
stomping percussion, and vocal power were stellar... their songs progressed from mellow to
powerhouse... their harmonies are superb and their songs have power." -
Moonshine Miracle
Moonshine Miracle
The moonshine miracle sound begins with a story. Summer of 1975… Chester made a metaphorically death bed confession to his son, “It’s a miracle that a moonshine drinkin’ lumberjack could produce a preacher!” Moonshine Miracle is rooted in belief that everyone’s story matters and that music (at it’s core) is telling a story while giving everyone permission to tell theirs.

MM Story:

After graduating with a trumpet degree from the University of Oklahoma. Nate Binion took a hiatus from music for almost 10 years to serve in faith-based work. In 2012 while living in downtown Austin and serving as an elementary school teacher, pastor and leader of a national not-for-profit for 20-somethings called Hyphen, his wife was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease called polymiositis. For therapy he began writing songs again. The love for music was too strong so after some months they chose to move back closer to their roots to pursue music and to be close to family. Nate played around Oklahoma with a hired band. He also found a niche playing organ, keys and horns for studio work and various bands.

But in 2015 when he thought his creative efforts might be static he met Miles Ralston and Kenzie Ralston (two accomplished musicians, recording artists and writers). After a few rehearsals they felt that this might be special and joined creative efforts. The rest is still being written.
From the heart of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City; two young artist join together to create a refreshing mix of indie/Alt with a Pop twist that will keep your head bobbing and toes tapping. You can easily feel their contageous energy and love for life in their new song "DO YOU EVER FEEL?".
