"That Ghost"

"That Ghost’s Young Fridays is great because Schmale’s smart heart-on-sleeve lyrics and rough melodies stick in your head a lot longer than it probably took him to record them."

- Fader

"Get It Get With It: That Ghost"

"That Ghost is the alias for 18-year-old Ryan Schmale, a textbook DIY musician from Sonoma County, California who has already self-released three records and two EP's before signing with Two Syllable Records. But while such prolificacy often leads to records weighed down by overabundant filler...Schmale has created something as wholly cohesive as it is charmingly unpolished." - My Old Kentucky Blog

"Great New Band: That Ghost"

"That Ghost’s Young Fridays has been on constant repeat at my apartment lately. 18-year-old Ryan Schmale’s brand of bedroom lo-fi is addictive, the kind of music that puts into words all of the angst about life and growing up that most people try to forget." - New York Rock Market

That Ghost is the moniker of nineteen year old Northern Californian songwriter/musician Ryan Schmale. All of the songs are a product of bedroom recordings all written and produced by Schmale.
