Ghostwriter "Darkest Hour" End Of The West Records

This is the second CD by Ghostwriter, and he has retained the gut-wrenching existential torment that made his first disc such an intense and somewhat draining experience. Itís not light listening for your next pool party, and he doesnít mean it to be. His songs bluster and brood with a dark emotional sincerity, carrying both the self-loathing and anti-social rage of someone who has trouble finding contentment. I can relate. As a one-man band, there is no buffer to his artistic expression, which manifests in a sort of torture-throated Americana that comes straight out of a broken heartland. - Ben
