Ghost Caravan’s music is orchestral, electronic soul. Shaina Silver-Baird acknowledges the depth and darkness of the lyrics. “I want to continue to push in that direction: personal/poetic lyrics coupled with grand, dramatic tracks. I want to develop the soulful element along with the orchestral. It’s such an exciting sound; very contemporary and yet derived from something deeper and older.” Despite the fact that the music can be dark, Silver-Baird feels that Ghost Caravan is uplifting. “It’s about understanding deep emotional experiences, but also about looking to the positive in life. I write from a personal place and find it relatively impossible not to give myself over completely to a song when I’m performing it. People can expect our shows to be intimate. However, the music is quite epic in scope so there is that duality. Hopefully, we have an experience together.”
Good Luck Shop is Mike McDonnell. A Canadian songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, his moving upbeat pop is laced with themes of heartache and tribulation. Having played in bands since the age of 15, McDonnell has shown an innate ability to groove and play music as it was meant to be played. As a bass player and musician, McDonnell has toured globally in venues ranging from soft seaters to concert halls. His versatility, energy and creativity have seen him play with a wide range of acts, and he is now venturing out on his own. Whether it be with a full band or as a solo acoustic artist, McDonnell will continue to put on a dynamic live show. His album: Girls, and the Fear of Dying, will be released later this year.
