Welcome! We are...

A four-piece, emotive indie rock band led by pianist Joseph Hitchcock, whose lyrics weave together themes of mythology, ancient civilizations and common heartbreak. After a period of performing under a different name, Hitchcock settled on the act's final identity and spent a turbulent year in and out of various studios before releasing a debut, By Ghosts, a collection of songs Hitchcock claims were given to him by a haunted piano. Within one month of its release, By Ghosts had already been added to the libraries and playlists of more than one hundred fifteen college and independent radio stations nationwide.

Intimate Show @ Backspace 

I had a super great time last night despite the small turnout. Tried out two new songs not on By Ghosts that went over very well. I can't wait to flesh them out further with my band! Big thanks to Sean Padilla, Kidaudra, Sports Coach and Naufragio (who was nice enough to take this picture for me) and especially Backspace for this beautifully and memorably mismatched lineup. Now it's time to begin preparing for our full band show at Nomads Music Lounge on May 23rd!

Seriously huge thanks to everyone who came out last night, The Mountain West for playing some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard and The Nines for hosting! I truly had a blast and seeing all my friends there means A LOT. This is just the beginning!
