ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hall of Ghosts reside off rock's beaten track - a dusty backroad where rootsy Americana fuses with cinematic, alternative pop music.

Singer/songwriter Jim Williams, a Shropshire (UK) based musician and producer, launched Hall of Ghosts as a solo act after several years fronting the Alt. Country band Additional Moog, who release two critically acclaimed albums ; "Thirty Three & A Third" and "Endless Air".

"A Random Quiet", the debut from Hall of Ghosts was recorded by Jim at his studio on the Shropshire/Mid Wales border over a two year period. Recording began with demos of previously unreleased Additional Moog songs before taking a folkier, more experimental direction with the arrival of new songs "Bye Bye Big Blue" and "Hall of Ghosts".

Flourishes of pedal steel were contributed by British steel guitar luminary Gerry Hogan, recorded in the unusual setting of Scotland's famous Old Blacksmith's - an old stone walled room normally used for wedding ceremonies.

The finished eight song album plays out as a meandering, musical road trip - a record exisiting in its own time and space, without regard to contemporary musical fashions.

"A Random Quiet" is released on March 26, 2012 on CD and via iTunes, CD Baby and Bandcamp.

Jim will play an acoustic set as he unveils Hall of Ghosts on tour in spring 2012, opening several shows as a guest of guitar great Albert Lee and his band throughout Europe and the UK.
