Ghostpoet + Andrew Ashong Live Next Week at Hackney Empire
Courtesy Rap and Soul.
After selling the Village Underground well in advance Ghostpoet returns for a full live show at the suitably decadent Hackney Empire. Don't sleep! Obaro Ejimiwe, aka Ghostpoet, laughs when he remembers how Gilles Peterson “took a risk on a random maverick” back in 2010 by signing him to the Radio 1 DJ's Brownswood imprint. Within a year, that risk paid off: Ghostpoet's debut album, Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, marked him out as one of the most distinct, uncategorisable and forward-thinking voices to emerge in British music this decade, and it was rewarded with a surprise Mercury Prize nomination in 2011. October 24th he returns, this time at Hackney Empire for yet another unforgettable performance sharing the stage with Andrew Ashong + Tom Alt J.
