Welcome To Ghost Trains

News - Ghost Trains have signed to UK label Shark Free Records

Ghost Trains feature in October's Acoustic Magazine

Ghost Trains are an acoustic-based UK band, driven by the words, music and vocals of
singer/songwriter Tim Ellis.

To date, they have released four full-length albums, toured across the UK, US, Europe &
Russia, supported many established artists, including Donovan, Dodgy and the
Bluetones, and have had an amazing reception from the international music press.

With a sound that's refreshingly difficult to pigeon-hole, Ghost Trains are perhaps best
described as a vibrant mix of traditional folk-rock and classic sixty’s pop.

Thousands of downloads of their 2010 album

Where Lovers Die
helped cement Ghost Trains' cult status around the world, even seeing them being played in
underground music clubs in Iran!

Their popularity continued to expand in 2011 with the next set of songs, which were as
lyrically gritty and honest as the previous albums', but perhaps sounded less like folk and
closer to the world of pop on the LP

Sniffing Round L.A.
In 2012 Ghost Trains finished their next album - 'Jack & Sunsine' which was released across
Europe by German label Beste Unterhaltung!

Tim's songwriting and the band's performance keep going from strength to strength.

Jack & Sunshine
The band are now very busy working on their next LP, due for release 2015

New Album
'This is not a record for background to the housework;
the attention it demands is rewarded with levels of
intelligence and depth that are missing from so much
modern popular music. It is that rarity – a mature
collection for an audience who thinks about what
it hears.
Catch Ghost Trains live in the UK before America and
the world claim them.'
