DIY Spotlight: Ghost Lit Kingdom


Originally started as an acoustic pop band fronted by a female and male vocalist, Ghost Lit Kingdom (GLK) turned into a DIY indie band with five vocalists at the helm of a tight orchestral sound and harmonization, as Ela Kitapci and Taylor Morrow developed their own signature sound and brand.

Only six months into forming GLK, they developed their sound and independently wrote and recorded a debut EP.

Three short months later, they released a single, “You Don’t Know Me,” which graced indie blogs including The Deli LA and HunnyPot Unlimited, who raved about their eclectic sound and tight-knit performances.

Part of their uniqueness lies in the fact that their music does not fit neatly into any particular genre box, as influences from folk, pop, jazz and alternative rock abound.

Coming up on their one-year anniversary, the band has already played numerous venues and events in SoCal including the Serenity Gathering Festival, House of Blues Main Stage, The Avalon and many more.

They recently released their second single, “Our Bodies,” before embarking on their first tour along the West Coast.

Upon returning, their fan base can expect to hear their debut EP, which will be teeming with a variety of genres and angelic vocals from lead singers Morrow and Kitapci.
