Winner of the 2017 Hollywood Music in Media Award for Alternative Artist
Love Ghost is an alternative rock band from Los Angeles. While young in age (two of them are juniors in high school), these musicians have a genuine and developed grunge rock sound. The band released their first full-length album “Lobotomy” on June 17th. The album was produced by Eric Lilivois and was recorded at London Bridge Studios in Seattle & NRG Studios in Los Angeles. Their sound has been compared to Alice in Chains and Smashing Pumpkins, amongst other throwback rock greats. Their music is influenced by the teenagers’ personal experiences of addiction, mental illness, heartache, love and coming of age.
Love Ghost was just named to Music Connection's Hot 100 Unsigned Bands for 2017. The band has played in Tar Fest, The Our Life Festival, Make Music Pasadena and Echo Park Rising. They have been the opening act for Smash Mouth, The Young Dubliners, Buckcherry, Berlin, Ozomatli and The Tubes. Their performance of "Forgive Me" on Balcony TV is currently the number 1 voted video of all-time.
