Allow me to introduce Jessicas Ghost! They are a Liverpool based band with a difference.
With a line up of cello, double bass, mandolin, keyboards, bongos, acoustic guitar, drums and tight vocal harmonies, the band have been taking the North West by storm since forming in June 2006.
Jessicas Ghost’s debut EP “Return To The Start” was released shortly after the band formed and tracks from this recording helped them to reach the final of the national battle of the bands competition “Climb the Tail” in 2007.
After performing at the final showcase, the band were approached by one of the judging panel, Richard JL Smith, a music lecturer at NEWI, Wrexham. Richard worked closely with the band on the recording and production of the band’s debut single “Breakdown”, recorded at The Wall recording studio in Wrexham.
The band are in the process of completing the recording of the as yet untitled debut album with Richard due for release in early 2009. “Breakdown” will be released on iTunes on 5th July along with the B-side “New Shoes”.
The band will be hosting a launch party at The New Picket Liverpool on 5th July, playing alongside some of their favourite Liverpool bands , at which guests will be able to purchase the limited edition CD single. Other bands featured on the night will be;
The Mono LPs
The Jeff Jepson Band
