Twin Ghost - singer/songwriter
Hot, sunny summer days - the sound of children playing, traffic, and the aroma of laundry drying on clotheslines. The soundtrack?
Soulful tunes evocative of the 70s, infused with the art of the song - before the time of music as product. A different time, a better time,
a more innocent time. These are the emotional connections conjured by the songs of Twin Ghost.
Born in The City Of Brotherly Love, this burgeoning songwriter spent his formative years playing everything from
punk and progressive rock to reggae, funk and soul, all the while holding dear his childhood influences;
those great singers and songwriters like Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, James Taylor and Marvin Gaye among others;
shaping his style, while producing copious amounts of original material, and developing his own unique voice.
The emergent style is a distillation of rootsy soulful rock with pop brilliance, embodied in the artist of today: Twin Ghost.
Twin Ghost -The Album
Rooted in the rock/soul/pop tradition of the great ballads of the 1970s - with smoky vocals and hooks all around - and presented for modern audiences comes his initial solo release, nine songs recorded and mastered in the first half of 2011 that comprise: Twin Ghost - The Album.
Twin Ghost succeeded in capturing the essence of his live shows while presenting a refined and well-produced collection of soulful ballads,
bluesy rockers, acoustic masterpieces, and hypnotic soundscapes that draw the listener in,
all with a poetic and lyrical sensibility as well as that characteristic unique to the artist: The Voice.
This first production signals the arrival of a new voice and a new movement in American music,
drawing from the best of the past and creating a refreshing and original sound for the future.
