Starting his musical journey at itch fm with UK Veteran Disorda in 2001, Ghost went on to host his own radio show for 5 years in a time considered a golden era for UK Hip Hop. In 2003 Ghost released his first record, the 'Ghost Stories EP'. Over the next 6 years followed 4 videos, 3 albums Seldom Seen often Heard (2006), ‘Freedom of Thought’ (2009), ‘Postcards From The Edge’ (2011), 4 EP's, a 7" single, a mix CD, guest production and remix work for the likes of Verb T, Kashmere (Strange U), Bonobo, The Heavy, Nicole Willis and the Soul Investigators.
Ghost is one of a handful of UK artists to have his music licensed in Japan; this led to 2 album releases for Japanese markets only.
New album 'Shards of Memories' marks the 10 year anniversary since the release of Ghost’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Seldom Seen Often Heard’.
Over the years Ghost has carved out a sound which is very much his own, thoughtful emotive laden Hip Hop beats and Instrumentals. Not just loops but heavily composed arrangements drawing the listener in to the music, multiple listens are required to hear everything that’s going on. On ‘Shards’ Ghost continues his own journey with a mix of past and contemporary Hip Hop sounds, live instrumentation, a hint of orchestral and blues vibes. Ghost has pulled together another masterful soundtrack. The key focus was to give the listener a journey through the album. This isn’t a mish mash of guest features that don't work as a collection of music. An album is a true test of any artist; an album takes time, planning and patience. And creativity.
‘Shards of Memories’ features the cream of UK Rap including Cappo, Verb T, Joker Starr, Benny Diction and Kal Sereousz. It features two of Dublin’s finest in G.I
. and Lethal Dialect, plus Australian legend Brad Strut and Aeryz from NZ. In keeping with a Ghost tradition the album also features 3 instrumental tracks, a style which earned Ghost much praise for his mostly instrumental 2nd album 'Freedom of Thought'.
To make the project even more unique Ghost created all 3 music videos by himself to mark this 10 year anniversary. Cutting his teeth making the ‘Prawns’ music video for Dirty Dike’s recent album and videos for Aussie heavyweight Briggs, Ghost show’s his creative side extends beyond music, now a talented director, cameraman and editor working as a freelance Creative Video Production freelancer.
