Jackie Stranger is a heavy soul and a modern take on American Roots Music. Jackie steals hearts in hopes of repairing his own. He travels through time in search of a place to rest. At the end of the track, there is only more track and it’s always rough.
Ghost Eagle is a high energy, Appalachian rooted trio consisting of drums, telecaster and amplified harmonica. Quick to set up and require minimal production from FOH. Pulling influences from recent acts like the Corbitt Brothers, Larry and his Flask, to punk rock essentials like the Kinks and Social Distortion, Ghost Eagle works to bridge the gap between mountain lifestyle and urban energy. Front man Spencer Mckenna has been at the helm of several east coast touring bands (GrassMonkey and Welcome to Hoonah) and brings his authentic southern character to full light in this stripped down incarnation. Playing without a bassist has allowed the opportunity for the role of soloist to be shared with amplified harmonica player, Robby Carden. Robby has preformed multiple times with such acts as Dangermuffin, Yarn, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, the Peoples Blues of Richmond, Larry and his Flask and many more. Drummer, Brian McKee brings his Latin and punk rock backbone to keep energy at its peak. Although soft spoken gentleman offstage, live performances offer the opportunity to exhale the daily struggle and invoke the moonshine infused, front porch party that we have all come to embrace. Looking to support our newest album and reach new crowds, Ghost Eagle recently toured north Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama playing venues such as the Basement in Nashville and the Preservation Pub in Knoxville. Hometown draw is usually 100- 175 as a solo act on average at venues like Martin’s Downtown. These boys have opened for acts such as Paleface,Dangermuffin and Cornmeal, Bright Light Social Hour as well and been featured at several regional showcases and music festivals like the Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, Camp Barefoot, Front Porch Fest, Pink Moon,and Floyd Fest.
