Originally titled 'Dylan Thomas Band' the Ghost House album was recorded in January of 2010. I assembled a band of friends who just so happen to be some of the best musicians Vancouver has to offer. I worked with Felix Fung of Little Red Sounds on the two previous records and plan to record with him again.
The album is comprised of the electric band (Dylan Thomas Band) and the acoustic band (The Dire Wolves). The sessions were a lot of fun - usually turning into a party towards the end of the night.
Filmmaker Wayne Morhart was there for much of the album, capturing the band recording their parts and basically filming everything else that comes along with making an album. The intention was to piece together a "making of" but due to everyone's busy schedule it didn't get finished. Instead, we settled on using the studio footage in the video for "Come Back To Me".
