Ghostkeeper The music of Ghostkeeper is a continually-evolving organism; the defining aspect of all their music to date, coursing through each of their evolutionary stages, is that the band truly sounds like no one else. The current iteration of the band – uniting core members/vocalists Shane Ghostkeeper and Sarah Houle with drummer Eric Hamelin (Chad VanGaalen, Nomoreshapes) and bassist Ryan Bourne (Sleepkit, Devonian Gardens, Chad VanGaalen) – has carved out Ghostkeeper’s most unique soundworld to date. Their songs incorporate elements of '60s girl-group melodies, dashes of country royalty- Lynn, Wynette, and Cline -, and a profound melodic sense drawn equally from ‘90s indie rock, African pop, and traditional Aboriginal pow wow music. And the results are as catchy as they are singular. The group takes its name from main songwriter: Shane Ghostkeeper. Their debut album Children of the Great Northern Muskeg was released on Saved by Radio on July 15, 2008 in Canada. The band's second album, titled Ghostkeeper, was released on March 9, 2010 by Flemish Eye Records.
