Handsome Ghost is an ethereal-acoustic band from Massachusetts comprised of singer-songwriter Tim Noyes and multi-instrumentalist/producer Eddie Byun. The project began in 2014 when Noyes released “Blood Stutter”, a dreamy ballad written about a relationship many years passed.
In the three years following the release of the single and with the addition of Byun, the group would develop a sound blending acoustic instruments with digital textures in their little home studio in the outskirts of Massachusetts. This soaring yet intimate sound is the backdrop to which Noyes continued to tell the stories of the same relationship that inspired “Blood Stutter”. Those stories would become their debut album, Welcome Back (January 2018).
In April of 2018, the duo released an acoustic companion to their full-length, entitled Welcome Back: The Acoustic Recordings (April 2018). This six-song EP consists of stripped versions of songs from Welcome Back. Says Noyes "I think we've seen the meaning behind many of the songs on our album Welcome Back change as we've changed from the original demos up to now... We wanted to offer a different take on the songs, to capture the rawness and intimacy of the original acoustic demos I made, and to record them in a way that you can really feel whatever you hear in the lyrics."
