Ghost Trees are Seth Nanaa (drums) and Brent Bagwell (tenor saxophone).
Nanaa and Bagwell met in NYC in 2000. Along with bassist Jordon Schranz, they formed The Eastern Seaboard. That trio toured the US relentlessly, releasing two records with legendary Italian label Black Saint and a fistful of vinyl and CDs from Tigerasylum Records.
After playing together for over a decade, they began investigating the duo format in earnest and released their debut 10″ picture disc on the Future Recordings label in 2012. September of 2014 saw the release of their LP, The New Gravity. In June of 2016, the duo – expanded to a big band as part of a month-long residency at Goodyear Arts – released a double 7″ called Goodyear. Their most recent effort, an LP entitled The Fascination, was released in October of 2017.
