Obaro Ejimiwe is a British singer, songwriter and musician better known by his stage name Ghostpoet. After receiving recognition for his first two albums, the two-time Mercury Prize nominee initiated a more alt-rock sound on his third album ›Shedding Skin‹ and acclaimed 2017 follow up ›Dark Days & Canapés‹, produced by Leo Abrahams, best known for his work with Brian Eno and Jon Hopkins. As we enter into this uncertain new decade, Ghostpoet returned in early 2020 with his self-produced ›I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep‹, a record of dystopian and atmospheric sonics and gut-punching lyrics. Gaining acclaim from critics for its sense of deeply seated menace and paranoia, the album is a fitting soundtrack for our uneasy times. Since 2021, Ghostpoet has been expanding the scope of his creative practice, using the visual arts as a new form of expression and activism.
Ghostpoet receives a grant of 7,000 euros in 2022 for the realisation of his sixth studio album.
