INFO: Romy and Sari Lightman are the founding members of the Halifax based folk group, Ghost Bees. The twin sisters have been playing music together and writing songs for as long as they can remember. Their sound has been referred to by critics as an "eclectic brand of spooky folk", with musical comparisions to the avante garde, hand-spun tales of Joanna Newsom and the dark and playful harmonies of CocoRosie. Ghost Bees follow in similiar form, weaving delicate, haunting vocals accompanied by uncoventional, bold and poetic prose. They have been noted in reviews by Canada's Walk of Fame, as an up-and coming band involved
in the "midst of Halifax's musical renaissance" amongst the "stream of burgeoning folk-inspired bands who are carving out their own paths within the indie folk scene".
