Dark, intense and introspective, Ghost Painted Sky is music from the turmoil of mind, heart and soul.

Ghost Painted Sky creates music that is introspective, dark, intense, and influenced by the classic goth, darkwave, and post-punk sounds of the 80s and 90s (along the lines of The Cure, Joy Division, Clan of Xymox, The Sisters of Mercy, Swans, Requiem in White, early Lycia and Human Drama).
Ghost Painted Sky began as the solo studio project of David Strong (vocals, guitar, drums, bass VI, bass guitar, keyboard, occasional programming), debuting with the 2014 release of the self-titled EP. The following year brought a second EP, The Shadows Breath, and the debut of the first live lineup.
In 2017 Lisa Wood contributed vocals on the Scars maxi-single, and has now become the second official member of the band, doing about half of the vocal work on our first full-length album, Flightless, released in late June 2018.
In 2019, our sound continues to evolve, as we work on new material and continue to play live.
•Our next show will be Friday, February 28th, 2020 with The Spearmint Sea and Daniel Ouellette at Union Tavern, 345 Somerville Ave, Somerville, MA. Doors at 8 p.m., 21+, $8.
•"I Am the Dividing Line" from the Barren Ground short collection of early works has a new video, thanks to friend and fan Peter V.
•"Cleansed" now has an official video...
•Our latest release is our first cassette, consisting of starker, colder, more keyboard and drum machine-based material, Barren Ground was recorded before Ghost Painted Sky existed in name, but has a similar spirit. See the News page for more info.
