Rearview Ghost is a band whose music would have been perfectly at home in the 70’s while maintaining a modern hard rock bluesy relevance. Having a female vocalist has not lead to a feminine sound. While the band has an aggressive sound it still maintains a focus on chord and harmony structure that is lacking in much of today’s Hard Rock scene.

Lead Singer Josia Fiorie grew up as an army brat constantly moving around and spent 7 years in Italy. She started voice lessons at the age of 8 studying Opera, her mother’s side of the family are all Opera singers. Josia says that while she enjoys singing Opera she finds it repetitious playing the same parts. She much prefers the creativity of being onstage doing something new every night. Her influences are mainly guys she admires them not just for their singing abilities but stage presence as well some of them include: Robert Plant, Freddy Mercury and Bono.

Guitarist Craig Shadix the self proclaimed “King of noise” describes himself as playing like “Jimmy Page on a bad night, and James Hetfield beating up Robert Smith”. He began playing guitar at age 10 with his first club gig at 17. Craig has been playing in working bands since 1993 starting with Ringo Levio during the decadent decade of grunge burning across the south and signing with Zeal Records in ’95 releaseing two cd’s Picnic and Pop Rock Kids. After several line up changes and an overall breakdown of Ringo Levio in ’97, Craig co-founded the band Horse which later attracted some interest from Columbia Records. Eventually signing with independent label Rumble Records in ‘01, Horse released the EP Revolution and the full length cd AMP. After three years of steady gigging, bad management and inner turmoil within the band Horse disbanded leaving Craig to form the punk rock quartet The Cocaines in ’05. Destroying punk rock locally, The Cocaines were able to use the internet and social networking to gain a following much larger than the area they toured.

Bassist Flip Cooper Grew up on a farm in a small town. He comes from a family of musicians, and fell in love with music at an early age. He found an old radio at his grandmother’s house and tuned in to a station that played Queen, Led Zeppelin, Kiss and was hooked. His parents bought him a guitar when he was 10 but he wasn’t that into it, he knew he wanted to play Bass after he saw Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue and Cliff Burton of Metallica. He received his first Bass at 12 when he was unable to go on a school field trip due to injuries from a motorcycle accident he persuaded his parents to use the money to buy him a bass. He started a band called Bad Karma when he was 19 and toured the Southeast. Later he joined 40 Cycle Hum whose album was produced by Norwood Fisher of Fishbone.

Drummer Tim Humlicek grew up in Clearwater Florida. He began playing drums at 6 years old. Tim played in the metal scene in Tampa FL at age 15. He received private instructions from Chester Thompson of Genesis/ Frank Zappa and Johnny Vidacovich a New Orleans Legend.
