Ghost Caravan’s music is orchestral, electronic soul. On her forthcoming EP T.O. Confidential, Shaina Silver-Baird collaborated with members of Grand Analog, the Weeknd, Hill Kourkoutis of the Launch, Martha and the Muffins and the Four On The Floor String Quartet. She acknowledges the depth and darkness of the lyrics. “I want to continue to push in that direction: personal/poetic lyrics coupled with grand, dramatic tracks. I want to develop the soulful element along with the orchestral. It’s such an exciting sound; very contemporary and yet derived from something deeper and older.”
Despite the fact that the music can be dark, Silver-Baird feels that Ghost Caravan is uplifting. “It’s about understanding deep emotional experiences, but also about looking to the positive in life. I write from a personal perspective and find it relatively impossible not to give myself over completely to a song when I’m performing live. People can expect our shows to be intimate. However, the music is quite epic in scope so there is that duality. If everything works, the performers and the audience have an experience together.”
