Palm Ghosts is a cinematic dream pop band based in East Nashville led by songwriter and producer Joseph Lekkas.
Palm Ghosts began in early 2013 as a creative outlet for dealing with depression and anxiety that left him incapacitated. Discovering that music was his only path through the mire, Joseph spent a long Philadelphia winter recording a batch of introspective songs that was to become the first Palm Ghosts record, a tapestry of lo-fi indie folk he christened Sun-damaged American music.
After a short tour in 2013, Joseph packed up his belongings and headed south to Nashville to take part in the southern city’s musical renaissance. He set up a small home studio in the guest bedroom of a house on Greenland Ave in Inglewood. Two years later he quietly released Greenland, Palm Ghosts’ second record, consisting of 15 electronic, folk and indie rock songs, clearly influenced by the song-is-king culture of his newly adopted city.
In May of 2017, he began work on his third record, a cinematic dark indie LP celebrating sounds from the most colorful of musical decades, the 1980s. Influenced by groups such as Cocteau Twins, Peter Gabriel, Dead Can Dance, New Order and The Cure, he started sketching song ideas to create the lush, cinematic arrangements he was hearing in his head. He recruited vocalist Erica Whitney Wilkes, guitarists Benjamin Jason Douglas and Jason Springman and drummer Rene Lambert to bring the fruit of his labors, Architecture, to life. <br>
