NEWS The brand new album from Ghostdriver 'Milestones' has been released in August, available as a download on itunes and Amazon and as a physical copy from CD Baby.com
Ghostdriver is a solo project. I have home studio and attack recording in the old fashioned way in that I dont use Pro Tools or Cubase, but 16 track digital recorder then mix and burn. I play all instruments myself, wrote the material myself and have been inspired by all genres over the years incuding punk rock, psychedelia, jazz, blues and funk. Just having fun recording my stuff without the added problem of ego's gettin in the way of the music!
Why this name?
Didnt really think about it, it was originally a song title.
Do you play live?
Play live in another band all over London UK
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Its allowed folks like us to get out music out there and have a voice, small time musicians make it big !

Not interested really, looking more to get my sounds into film or TV.
