Ghostpoet announces his debut Australian tour, bringing his live band and performing songs from his Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam album.
An intoxicating and heady mix of indie guitars, crashing drums, club beats and spooky synths, Ghostpoets music is not easily defined, which is perhaps why he has won so many fans so quickly.
Born and raised somewhere between London, Coventry, Nigeria and Dominica, Ghostpoet (real name Obaro Ejimiwethe) was discovered in his early twenties by Gilles Peterson who quickly signed him to his label Brownswood Recordings. With a free EP, several singles and remixes under his belt (including works with Micachu, Roots Manuva, dBridge, xxxy and more), Ghostpoets rise to prominence has been swift, but given his impactful tales of everyday life, were only at the tip of the iceberg for what this gifted storyteller has to give.
