Two years on from the release of his Mercury nominated debut, ‘Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam’, Ghostpoet aka Obaro Ejimiwe releases ‘Cold Win’ – the second single from his new album ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’ which came out May 2013 through Play It Again Sam, which was nominated in two categories at this year’s AIM Awards.

Fresh from a SOLD OUT UK tour, which included The Village Underground plus a packed summer of festival dates, Ghostpoet announces his October headline tour that concludes with London’s Hackney Empire. Tickets can be found here: www.ghostpoet.co.uk/tour.  Support comes from the fantastic Mt Wolf, who will be joining Ghostpoet on all dates apart from London, Manchester, Cardiff and Dublin.  Singer/songwriter Andrew Ashong has been added to the bill in London, fresh from his acclaimed performance at Croatia’s Soundwave Festival.
