Ghostwriter is the post-punk version of a self-accompanied singer-songwriter. Ghostwriter has toured the States for the last fifteen years and released seven albums on End of the West records. Early on, Ghostwriter toured alongside Dex Romweber (Flat Duo Jets) and Th' Legendary Shack Shakers. After performing in festivals from Sleazefest in Chapel Hill to Not the Same Old Blues Crap in London, Ghostwriter was tapped to support icons like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and T-Model Ford. Known for his visceral songwriting and relentless live shows, Ghostwriter's DIY approach continues to scour the underbelly of American music.
