Ghostpoet
One abandoned piano, some Dim Sum and a half-marathon later
Ghostpoet’s back and though he’s still mumbling on his tracks in a style that has become his own his intentions are clearer: delivering content about himself in any perspective possible, relatable to all. For this album Ghostpoet headed to a studio with a producer. This has made Some Say I So I Say Light musically more experimental without losing the signature introverted and lonely atmosphere thanks to an abandoned East London piano.
