Made up of members Andrew Shepard (vocals, guitar), Zach Shepard (bass), Maxx Shepard (drums, vocals), Stephen Garza (guitar, vocals), and Kiffy Myers (pedal steel, banjo), Roadkill Ghost Choir is a folk rock band from DeLand, FL that has been performing since 2011.
Most of their recording work has occured at North Avenue Studios in Orange City, FL, although much of the recording for their upcoming album was done at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Georgia. When they first started out as a band, touring was “incredibly expensive and very depressing,” but as their booking agent helped them cultivate ideas and make connections, the hard work involved became much more rewarding. Their new album In Tongues is scheduled to be released on August 19th and will consist of 10 songs with titles such as Lazarus You’ve Been Dreaming, Slow Knife and A Blow to the Head. Influences include Bob Dylan, Radiohead and Gram Parsons. Other than their performance on the David Letterman Show in January, and an appearance on the cover of Orlando Weekly magazine in April, they consider that their greatest success is being able to tour the country and do what they love. While many unsigned bands in the Orlando area have never performed outside of Florida, Roadkill Ghost Choir has shows booked in, among other places, Colorado, Illinois and South Carolina from now until October.
