Artist Bio

The Ghosts Project is comprised of a violinist, Paul Mercer, and percussionist, Davis Petterson. The duo has been performing in Atlanta and across the U.S. together since 2006. One project we have particularly enjoyed working on is creating score for films, both silent films from the first half of the 20th Century and independent films from more recent years.

Davis Petterson has been a percussionist for twenty years and has performed with bands such as The Changlings, The Hellblinki Sextet, Strezo, Jill Tracy’s Malcontent Orchestra, DP3, The Nathaniel Johnstone Band and Soriah. He also performs regularly for local theatre productions. Current projects include The Ghosts Project and Juliana Finch & the Gentlemanly Scholars.

Paul Mercer began studying violin at age 8 and has performed professionally for over twenty years. His current and past projects include The Ghosts Project, The Changlings, Jill Tracy’s Malcontent Orchestra, Faith and the Muse, DP3, Brass Knuckle Surfer and The Sweet Meat Love and Holy Cult.
