One of the best-kept secrets in the music world, Marley's Ghost are an untapped natural resource waiting to be discovered. With over 20 years of spirited musicianship, multi-part harmonies and irreverent humor, their collective old timey approach glides with deadpan sincerity through sea chanteys, perverted mountain gospel, country-rock, vintage pre-WWII jazz and pop. Ghost Town was produced by Cowboy Jack Clement, the beloved dean of Nashville producers, and the presence of Marley's in his studio has earned the band its first Music Row buzz.
Interesting, retro, traditional country western folk rock...

"With Marley's Ghost's latest release, Ghost Town, there is something contemporary and appealing in the handling of what are essentially old-fashioned country western folk songs - dare I say cowboy folk music. Retro is cool, right? This album is a fresh reminder that this site is not about what is commercially popular - instead, seek the unique, the creative, the pioneering. And Ghost Town qualifies. And the sound - a grassrootsy mix of...John Denver? Jimmy Buffet? Levon Helm? John Prine? I'm not sure if these guys belong on Austin City Limits or in the Grand Ole Opry. Marley's Ghost has been around since the `80s and forces listeners to hear their music on its own terms, not the pre-conceived parameters that many of us get locked into - myself especially. It took me a few listens, but I have turned the corner and really enjoy this album.
