Ghost Trains are an acoustic-based 3-piece UK band,driven by the words and music 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.
Ghost Trains have recently finished their best album so far - 'Jack & Sunsine' which has been released across Europe
by German label Beste Unterhaltung!
Tim's songwriting and the band's performance keep going from strength to strength.

'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.'
- Andy Hughes, writer for Acoustic Magazine
'Astonishing songs' - BBC Music
'Hugely impressive' - Genevieve Tudor, BBC Folk
'Soulful Bohemia' - The Evening Sentinel
'Stunning' - The Rock Times (Germany)
'Delicious sixties-inspired folk rock' - Rootstime (Belgium)
'The acoustic Beatles!' - Channel 6 (Russian TV)
'Ghost Trains successfully blend the UK and American styles as
well as combining mainstream light rock with traditional folk.
The balance is extraordinary.'
- David Hintz, Folkworld Magazine
