Handsome Ghost embodies the shared spirit of two separate souls.
Tim Noyes [singer, songwriter] and Eddie Byun [multi-instrumentalist, producer] commune in a creative call-and-response, answering each other’s personal and musical confessions, thoughts, and questions sonically. Underpinned by these two perspectives, the music tempers otherworldly production with organic performances, rustic instrumentation with raw production, and nostalgic warmth with future-facing wonder.
Together, Handsome Ghost have quietly enchanted, engaged, and entranced audiences. During 2014, “Blood Stutter” surpassed 20 million streams and paved the way for the Steps EP. 2016 saw them pick up the pace with The Brilliant Glow EP highlighted by the fan favorite “Eyes Wide.” They revealed their 2018 full-length debut Welcome Back, housing “Fool,” “Reckless Love,” and more. In the midst of the global pandemic, the pair unveiled 2020’s Some Still Morning. “Weeds” eclipsed 5 million Spotify streams as the LP incited critical applause. American Songwriter attested, “Handsome Ghost manages to revive its beloved folk aesthetic with appreciable sincerity,” and Variance raved, “It really is a must-hear project.”
After amassing tens of millions of streams and receiving widespread acclaim from American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine, Culture Collide, Talkhouse, Under The Radar, Variance, and more, the Massachusetts duo continue to explore the intricacies of their artistic bond and friendship on their third full-length offering and Nettwerk Music Group debut out summer 2023.
