Since forming in 1990, Nashville legends The Floating Men have become one of the most influential indie acts in the Eastern US, releasing seven critically-acclaimed studio albums and a bevy of officially-authorized “bootlegs”. Their songs are covered by young performers all over the country, their lyrics are discussed in college classrooms, and they have inspired innumerable songwriters, musicians, and poets. Supported by a ravenously loyal cult of road-tripping followers (self-dubbed “The Floatilla”), The Floating Men continued to stretch musical boundaries on their 2002 CD release, “A Magnificent Man”, and on their 2004 release “The Haunting”, The Floatilla, as their fans are known, became ""Executive Producers"" of individual tracks by paying as much as $1,000 per team to watch The Floating Men record a new batch of character-rich songs. The Haunting is the third consecutive studio album fully funded by their enthusiastic fan base.

The Haunting
The seventh studio release from Nashville legends The Floating Men isn't exactly the same old boy-meets-girl story. "Sure, boy meets girl," says lyricist and lead singer Jeff Holmes. "But then boy dies in a gunfight with the police, boy roams the earth not knowing he's a ghost, boy meets some strange characters, boy finds peace at the end.”
