Ghost is a music producer originally from the UK, who relocated to New Zealand with his partner in 2009. He is a multi-talented guy and definitely someone you should check out for. Ghost has worked on many releases, from his earlier works like the Ghost Stories EP to Basic Instinct EP on Breakin Bread Records. To his collaborations with UK based emcees: Jehst, Verb T and Kashmere amongst many others.
His music always displays his signature sound, multi-layered tunes with hard-hitting drums. This album ‘A Tale of Life in VI Parts’ is a really important body of work, it takes the listener on an emotional journey as expressed by Ghost in his own words…
So December 2011, Ghost, now a proud father of 2 boys (one 2 years old and the other 5 months old) heard the news that his love and partner had a rare form of cancer. Although treatable, ahead lies 6 months of treatment and hopefully a happy outcome.
‘A Tale of Life in VI Parts’ was started when it became clear something might be wrong and tracks the emotional journey of contemplating life whilst waiting for results. Taking inspiration from composer Philip Glass, Ghost takes you to deep and dark places but maintains a strength of character throughout its 22 minutes.
Heavily orchestrated strings, pianos and drums are the backdrop to the EP giving it a genuine cinematic feel. ‘A Tale of Life in VI Parts’ was made for the listener to enjoy from start to finish without pause, so we highly recommend you find a spot of quiet time in your schedule and turn off your mobile volume, switch the TV off, maybe even grab the headphones and enjoy.
Timeless music indeed, please support!
