Roam Like Ghosts - Mathew Daugherty


Roam Like Ghosts is an original acoustic duo of Mathew Daugherty on vocals and Bucky Fairfax on guitars. The group blends styles across various genres from rock to folk for an alternative sound that is a fall back to post grunge acoustic songs with progressive swampy flair. The virtual duo based in Reston, VA and Cary, NC respectively, rejoins twenty years after their former band SEDAH, based in Richmond, VA, ended. Although Daugherty and Fairfax continued separately with other bands, notably for Daugherty - Drivelink, 3STARKARMA and notably for Fairfax - Radio Silent Auction, and Something for Now, collaborations occurred over the years for a handful of songs. In 2017, a new sound and writing style with more subtle intensity and reflection emerged between the duo. Delicate guitar playing and restraint coupled with vocal strength, ghostly melodies, and sober thoughtfulness forms songs of love and loss, life and death, hope and fear. Their debut album, "Yesterday and the Day Before", returns to provide a musical fusion and softer side of their formative rebellious years with reminiscence, simplicity, and refinement.
