There are at least 2 artists with the name Ghosty.
1. An indie rock band from Kansas.
2. A hip hop artist from Pittspurgh, PA.
1. After two full length albums, a slew of EP’s, and several miles of tape, Ghosty is now putting the finishing touches on their latest short-form release, entitled “Team Up Again”. This will be the third installment in a series of digital EPs released on the band’s own More Famouser Records imprint. In the Fall of 2010, a 12” vinyl LP release on More Famouser will collect the highlights of the Ghosty EP series, combined with unreleased tracks, to form the band’s third full-length album.
It’s fair to say that a sense of longing and reflection permeates Ghosty’s music. Members Connor, Nolte, Wetzel, Adams, Blanton, and Johnson aren’t sure why this is, but they continue this trend with their latest release. It would seem that Ghosty is simply attempting to understand its own inner child, ambitiously and optimistically hoping that through introspection they might stumble onto some universal truths and “connect” with other human beings with those same urges. Ghosty occasionally fears that its devotion to /obsession with pop music has “gone too far” or is having an “irreversible corrosive impact” on other aspects of its life, but that’s probably just Ghosty being paranoid.
Between years spent in both Lawrence, KS and Kansas City, MO, Ghosty has always managed to catch new hooks out of the air, and from these hooks, build tunes that are earnest and refreshing. Their songs have been known to posses powers to please your ear, arrest your indifference, jolt you from your routine, or overwhelm you with wistful sentimentality for days gone by. Their newest work is no exception. …At least that’s how Ghosty hopes you might feel.
2. Ghosty; born 10/27/88 and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Hip hop artist. Latest mixtape: UPS Is Hiring (2010). Can't find much else about him, let alone a wiki page or website.
