Ghost In Light is an ambient, atmospheric indie rock outfit from St. Louis, MO.

Biography

-Ghost in Light creates an ambient, atmospheric instrumental backdrop for lyrics that explore how it feels to face demons, to accept the truth, to see your ghosts in light. Ghost in Light creates intensity through subtlety and power through anticipation. Lush vocal harmonies have become a staple of Ghost In Light's live show and recordings as all 3 members of the band assume vocal duties. Ghost in Light attempts to create honest music with no gimmicks. You won't get a theatrical show from this band, you get a listening experience that strives for warmth and purity, inviting the listener to take a closer look.

Lyrics

The Snow is Soaking My Shoes

Written By: Jason House

What can I say?
I never was okay.
What lived in me was taken violently.
And the saddest part,
Is that I never was okay.
I'm lying here.
This blood won't bring you back.
