Ghost Caravan

With the formidable Shaina Silver-Baird leading the way, Ghost Caravan is the kind of band that demands your attention not through force but through sheer inventiveness and originality. ”

— Listen with Monger

Ghost Caravan is a group of collaborators lead by Shaina Silver-Baird. Her “ghosts” are what inform the music that she writes. Whether they are the ghosts of specific people, the ghosts of past loves or the ghosts of experience, this caravan of ghosts is the origin of her songs. “My music is about real life - the lyrics are honest. But I focus on finding the light, the moment when you realize your own strength and ability to move forward. There's enough negativity in the world already. I especially want to be proud to share my songs with young women. There are so many voices in the world telling women how to think and feel about themselves. I want to be the voice that celebrates women. I want to empower and uplift people.” 

The music itself is electro-pop meets orchestral soultronica. The Ghost Caravan live show mixes electronic elements with live instruments creating a sound that is cinematic and invigorating. Silver-Baird elaborates, “I love the combination of personal/poetic lyrics coupled with grand, dramatic tracks. It’s such an exciting sound – I love how celebratory it is. It’s as if we get to see the world through glasses that make the colours a bit more vibrant and the moments a bit more joyous. And getting to play these songs live with an all-female band is an exciting, powerful experience. Plus, it’s just so damn fun!”

Ghost Caravan was named one of the Best of the Fest at IndieWeek 2018. Single "Damn You" was named Song of the Week by CBC Radio 1 and three of her songs can be heard in season 3 of the hit series "Kim's Convenience" (CBC) on Netflix. GC's live appearances have included CMW, NXNE, TIFF, Luminato, IndieWeek, Taste of the Danforth and many more.
