Ghost Painted Sky is a New England-based duo creating dark, intense, introspective music, with a sound built upon the influence of the classic goth, post-punk, and darkwave sounds of the 80s and 90s.
Ghost Painted Sky began as the solo studio project of David Strong, as a way to process some major life changes through songwriting, which resulted in a debut self-titled EP released in 2014. The following year brought a second short EP, The Shadows Breath, and the first live performances.
In 2017 and 2018 Lisa Wood began contributing vocals with the Scars EP, and then the first full-length Ghost Painted Sky album, Flightless, released in the summer of 2018. Lisa has since become the second official member of the band and primary vocalist.
Out of the turbulence of 2020 and early 2021 came several virtual shows, appearances on the compilations The Unquiet Grave 2020 (Cleopatra Records, 2020), and 33 Gothic Bands You Should Know, Volume 8 (Post-Gothic, 2021).
Most recently, in autumn of 2021, Ghost Painted Sky has released the Ephemeral Wake EP, featuring two new songs ("There Against the Wall" and "Cleansed"), as well as a revisitation of "A Fleeting Moment" from the Flightless album, and a reworking of sometime collaborator Michael Rebeiro's song "Fallen Beauty."
As live shows resume in late 2021, work on the second full-length album continues, as does the ever-present theme of songwriting as vessel for personal exploration and catharsis.
