Magnets and Ghosts is an Alternative rock band and production team made up of Dean Roland (Collective Soul) and Ryan Potesta. The duo first met during the creation of Collective Soul's 2007 album Afterwords. After discovering they had similar taste in music and when Collective Soul went on hiatus in 2010, they decided to form their own band, Magnets and Ghosts.
In the fall of 2011, Magnets and Ghosts released their debut, full-length album, Mass, which was well received by fans and critics alike. Influenced by bands like Radiohead, Doves and Elbow, Roland and Potesta created honest and inspiring rock anthems such as "Like a Sunday" and "Light My Flame" that showcased their strong songwriting talent.
In 2014 Magnets and Ghosts returned with a new EP called be born. Featuring standout tracks like "Drug Money" and "Here To Save Me," be born is an impressive follow-up that finds them exploring their vast sound with sincere honesty and intense vulnerability. The record balances their rock roots with a pop-sensibility that transcends genres and is accessible to practically everyone.
Magnets and Ghosts have just completed their third studio record and are planning a late spring 2018 release. Stay tuned!
