PLAIN AS GHOSTS draws on deep, personal experiences derived through love, loss and life. The intimate lyrics spark an outlook of hope and integrity which comes as a refreshing take on a genre typically fuelled by anger and aggression. The music is described as heavy and lyrically directed with hints of melodic ambience.

Formed in 2014, the Winnipeg-based alternative-rock band comprises of Trevor Lux (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Halstrom (bass/vocals), Rodrigo Ramirez (drums), and Daniel Friesen (vocals/guitar). They rehearse from Trevor’s home in Niverville – a rural community 30 km south of Winnipeg.

There is a thoughtful story being told on each track of the band’s self-produced debut album RENDERING.

“Plain as Ghosts’ debut album is an appreciation of life’s silent moments– periods that follow a loss or love affair. The album plays on the theme of processing emotions and sentiments. There’s hardly a better band to depict this than the prairie rock band.” -Tobi Nifesi (The Manitoban).

The album released in 2016, has charted on campus radio and earned the band an opening spot for Tom Cochrane in 2017.

This prairie rock band draws upon many combined years of stage and studio experience. As such, PLAIN AS GHOSTS is excited to bring a dynamic, high energy performance to the stage with a dash of down to earth charm!
