About the band: Holy Ghost Tent Revival

Nine years, three genres, and four records into it, Ashville-based Holy Ghost Tent Revival’s sound has emerged as something different than anyone might have expected. The music is filled with three and four-part harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles in one section and Motown in the next. The drums, bass, and keys, are centered on a Stax-like groove, and the three electric guitars breathe dynamics into each song. All-the-while with organic horns provide soul to get people up and dancing.

With their latest EP release, Summer Jelly, Holy Ghost Tent Revival adds new depth to their sound, and their fans are digging it. The seven expert musicians include Stephen Murray, Dulci Ellenberger, Kevin Williams, Matt Martin, Ross Montsinger, Henry Widmer and Charlie Humphrey. Paste Magazine describes their style as “soul-inspired rock that maintains a rootsy sound, brightened by warm swells of horns and rich harmonies.”
