“Composed of stripped down arrangements and smart storytelling, Haunted Like Human’s songs are a multilayered listen that commands your attention and soothes you at the same time.” - Shutter 16
Haunted Like Human is bringing a new roots voice to Nashville: two parts folk, one part Americana, and a dash of indie vibes. Classically trained guitarist Cody Clark has played everything from post-hardcore to jazz. Vocalist Dale Chapman grew up writing prose and poetry, and she brings her strong imagery and storytelling into her music. A combination of Northwestern grit and Southern charm, the two strive to create a unique and intimate listening experience.
After meeting for a co-write in Nashville in April of 2017, the pair hit the ground running. They continued playing and writing together, and in September of 2017 they released their debut album, Ghost Stories, whose title track is the song from that first co-write. They made their first festival appearance just six months later at RedGorilla Music Fest 2018 in Austin, TX. The two have toured the Midwest and the South several times over and have recently begun expanding into the Pacific Northwest. After a year of honing their sound, they returned to the studio with a clear vision, and in October of 2018 they released a new EP, Folklore.
The duo haven’t slowed down. They have begun playing more festivals, most notably the Deep Ellum Arts Festival and an upcoming performance at Porch Stomp 2019. Always looking for new opportunities, they recently partnered with new podcast The Schroeding Box to write the theme song and underscore music. The resulting theme, “Come a Little Closer”, will be released as a single July 12, 2019.
