Influenced heavily by late 90s and early 2000s rock scenes, Ghost of Gatsby has come together with a unique blend of melodic and emotional rock with soaring, jazz-influenced guitar riffs. Often compared to Brand New and Chevelle, Ghost of Gatsby puts a special focus on emotional and relatable lyrics about existential difficulties and the hope of pulling through.
Ghost of Gatsby formed in July of 2017 between Rob Mulstay (guitar) and Connor Dayley (drums) as a project with big dreams and no expectations. Without operating under a name, they set a time to practice every week and rigorously stuck to the scheduled music time. By early 2018 Taylor Irving was recruited on guitar as another jam partner, and upon hearing Taylor’s jazz and blues influenced contributions to the sound they were immediately engaged in the idea of taking this project to a higher level. Ian Epperson was recruited not long after to play bass and they gave themselves a name. First referred to as Gatsby after the character from the book, the band eventually changed its name to Ghost of Gatsby.
