About Ghosts Like Us

Ghosts Like Us

Ghosts Like Us is a five piece alternative band based in Portland Oregon combining wide ranging soulful vocals with organ and guitar riffs. The group was co-founded by song writing duo Matthew Gailey and Peter Lance after collaborating on Matthew's 2013 solo debut EP Beast in Babylon. Willamette Week describes Ghosts Like Us as  "Indie rock bending around a retro sound..." and Pink Martini's China Forbes "...was blown away by Matthew's voice the minute he started to sing. He has an effortless sound!"  

Gailey, a singer with a gospel, jazz and rock background, has shared the stage with a number of Portland musicians and bands including the Portland Cello Project in a concert version of Radiohead's OK Computer at the Aladdin and opened for Pink Martini's China Forbes for NW Film Center's annual gala.

Although still fairly new to Portland's music scene, Ghosts Like Us has been featured at local events including BMW Motorfest Northwest's annual vintage car festival and benefit for the Oregon Food Bank, Portland Monthly Magazine's "Light a Fire" awards dinner at the Portland Art Museum and a community event for Weiden Kennedy Center. The group can also be found playing their favorite local haunts including The White Eagle, Alberta Street Pub and The Secret Society.
