THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Ghosts of Sunset features former Dutch Henry singer-songwriter John Merchant and former Verve Pipe drummer Todd Long. Although the former lives in Michigan and the latter lives in Alaska, together they have made a killer EP called Headed West.
Headed West features the work of both Merchant and Long, as well as a cast of musicians with their roots in the 1980’s hard rock/hair metal scene grounded in Los Angeles. The guest list includes Tim Mosher (Junkyard), Traci Gunns (LA Guns), Adam Hamilton (Tuff), Johnny Monaco (Enuff Z’Nuff), Stacey Blades (Ratt) and Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger). The result is a selection of songs with roots buried in the Sunset Strip, but with an authentic, updated vibe.”
