Should melodic hooks and intelligent introspection be mutually exclusive? Not if you ask Sullivan, the North Carolina rock band whose debut album "Hey I'm A Ghost" boasts a surprising mix of instrumental depth and instantly memorable pop-leaning crooning. Produced by Matt Goldman (Copeland, Underoath) and mixed by Mike Watts, the album is shocking in its depth, recalling the greatest moments of Jimmy Eat World and Sunny Day Real Estate while carving out a niche that is distinctly Sullivan's sole territory. Sullivan has come leaps and bounds from when singer/guitarist Brooks Paschal and bass player Zach Harward were writing songs with a drum machine a few years ago, adding drummer Phil Chamberlain (brother of Underoath vocalist Spencer) and guitarist Tyson Shipman to fully realize their sound and their shared dream of truly connecting with fans emotionally. Sullivan's sophomore album, "Cover Your Eyes" came out June 5th 2007 and is a continuation of their melodic hooks and intelligent lyrics.
As of November 10th, 2007, Sullivan has broken up.
There's at least one other band with the name Sullivan. It's a French band and one of their greatest hits was Hashish Faction.
Sullivan was a rock band from Greensboro, North Carolina, USA.
