Observing The Ghost

Observing The Ghost are a brand new musical experiment conducted by Brad Dorey (Lead Vox/Guitar) and James Herrity (Lead Vox/Guitar) formed in Portsmouth. Joined by Ben Brockway (Guitar/Electronics/Vox), Billy Higgs (Drums) and Ben Ysselmuiden (bass) they aim to make the biggest music we can, with as much emotional depth as possible. The band are made up of members of previous successful local bands, a local “supergroup” if you will.

The Ghost began in February 2011 when Brad, James & Billy began writing together. They recruited Ben Ysselmuiden a week before their first show at The Talking Heads in Southampton in early April & then later on in June Ben Brockway joined completing their landscape of sound. In the short time they have been together they have already played legendary venues such as The Wedgewood Rooms (Portsmouth), The Joiners (Southampton), The Railway (Winchester) and are building a reputation across the south as a must see live act, as well as drawing attention from promoters, managers & labels across the UK already.

They began work on their debut EP in May & on 03/09/2011 the Ghost finally released ‘We Will Find The Sun’ for free download (limited time only). They produced & recorded the EP themselves. The Ghost plan to really kick things off in 2012, releasing their music on all major download sites, shooting music videos for every track on their EP and touring in support of the EP as well as gigging as much as possible locally to keep building on the growing fan base. The Ghost has only just begun. They begin their UK tour in April.
