“Ghost Towns of the Midwest. A great band with a pretty good taste in wine.” Stephen Walker, (The Ghost) – 102.7RRRFM




The group was formed by singer-songwriter Cam Ewart, who cut his teeth sharing dusty stages with The Drones, Don Walker, Wagons & many more. He has also been invited to share the stage with Tim Rogers, Dave Larkin, Chris Russell & more in his time.

“Home” EP – 2015:


Enlisting the talents of Myles Mumford, notable chap about town, the band & Myles decided to record the latest EP at singer/songwriter Cam Ewart’s mountain home in the outer East of Melbourne.


After converting the lounge into a makeshift studio, Myles captured the six songs whilst Cam’s wife took their hound, and four month old daughter, outside for some fresh air during takes.


This new EP is the first featuring the band as a 5 piece, with the addition of Ewart’s brother Ben on double bass & mandolin. He adds a fourth voice to the band, taking their sound to new places further off the main Alt-Country road.


“Lovely alt-country vibes from Ghost Towns of the Midwest!” – Sarah Howells. Triple J.


The Songs:


Some Girls – Opening up both Ewart’s lyrical scope & the band’s sound, a song about girls. In other words, a song about a subject often studied & never understood.


Jars – Upbeat boot shaker & a musical “last will & testament”.


Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) – Cover of the Arcade Fire track in which the band strip the song back to shed light on the Springsteen-esque undercurrents.


One Eye on the Road – Written during a sit down with Charles Jenkins, who suggested moving up to a C in the chorus. Cheers Charles.


Already at Sea – Utilising the bands string section, a waltzy tale of grown up sleepovers.


California – A gig favourite in which Cam sends the listener off in solo mode, delivering his greatest musical story to date. Captured in one take & featuring Cam’s dog towards the end.
