Brooklyn-based soul quartet GHOST STAR mixes old blues, classic jazz, funk and alternative to create a sound that is soul uplifting, heartbreaking and hip swinging. Bassist/composer Daniel José Older draws from his experience as a science fiction writer and 911 paramedic to write edgy, poetic ballads and frontman Akie Bermiss leads the group with his blues-infused vocal and piano stylings. As Artists In Residence at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Ghost Star created a live multimedia rockumentary project called City Of Love & Disaster. The performance featured shadow play, original music and choreography and archival research to explore the Manhattan race riots. Ghost Star has been supported by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Center, The Puffin Foundation and The Brooklyn Historical Society.
