Ghost In The Tanglewood

Ginger has just launched his Pledge campaign for his new country album, Ghost In The Tanglewood.

He says:
“I’m beyond chuffed to bring you this, my first album in a country style.
Ghost In The Tanglewood features an all new gang of seasoned musicians, and I’m honestly delighted with this finished album.

My fairly unavoidable accent means that the songs come off less Willie Nelson and more Bobby Thompson, but every lyric is purely heartfelt and every song is as true a story as you’ll ever hear in roots based music. This is Country music, played by a working class Geordie raised on Country and Northern Folk music. This stuff has always been in my blood since I was a wee nipper and it’s an honour to finally get to play it for you.”

You can watch Ginger explain all about the album at the PledgeMusic page, where it is available for pre-order right now on CD and vinyl, both signed and unsigned, as well as a very tasty personalised A2 art print. You will also get an immediate download of the album when you place your order, so you can begin to enjoy it straight away!
