“Marley’s Ghost is nothing less than a national treasure!”
-The Los Angeles Weekly
“If there is a group, in the era after the sad passing of Levon Helm, who can push forward the ageless Americana blueprint of The Band, it might just be Marley’s Ghost.” – Something Else
Marley’s Ghost is an eclectic aggregation composed of singer/multi-instrumentalists Dan Wheetman, Jon Wilcox, Mike Phelan, Bob Nicols, Ed Littlefield Jr. and Jerry Fletcher – the band can sing and play anything with spot-on feel, from roots to rock, blues to bluegrass, gospel to stone country, which is what they’ve been doing – to the ongoing delight of a fervent cult that includes many of their fellow musicians – throughout their first quarter century as a working unit. Their trademark multi-part harmonies never cease to captivate, whether on record or in live performance.“The real draw is the band itself, showcasing the kind of ensemble performances that come only from a lifetime of playing together, thriving across the decades as virtuosic, unsung heroes of country, folk, and Western swing.” – Acoustic Guitar
On the heels of The Woodstock Sessions, its rootsy collaboration with producer Larry Campbell to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary, Marley’s Ghost returned to the studio with Campbell to continue the chemistry. The result is a joyful and resonant album of gospel roots featuring the band’s trademark multi-part harmonies, to be released in 2017. The revelation, though, is just how strong and unswerving Marley’s Ghost stays centered on doing American music proud.
“It’s a love affair set to sound, and every time it comes around we’re all the better for it. Believe.”– Bill Bentley, The Morton Report
“Thirty years into their career, Marley’s Ghost is like a well-worn leather jacket. You can admire their tenure intellectually, but up-close, with your ears, you can’t help but be moved by the effortless music that tenure has produced.” – No Depression
“…remarkable, distinctive voices…giddily eccentric eclecticism…a heady, subversive treat.”—No Depression
