A project focussed on the seeking, sharing and supporting of underexposed new music, A Lonely Ghost Burning aims to exist in the interests of listeners and artists alike. Discovery. Community. Honesty. Pleasantness.
Carefully curated and free to download, our compilations are intended as an introduction into the recent albums, EPs and demos that are most deserving of attention.
Latest: Vol. 5 (012)
Featuring the considerable talents of Riley Pinkerton / Benedict Benjamin / Ditte Elly / Halina Heron / Nightingail / SJ Kurtis / Ira Wolf / Redfox / A Voice For Vultures / Perlo / Max Krumm
In-depth and conducted with genuine interest, our interviews strive to explore the character, hopes, fears, motivations and creative process of the person behind the artistry, providing a humanistic rather than consumerist insight into the work they produce.

'I didn’t know any of the artists on the album [Beautiful Songwriting Vol. 3], but I loved every single song... They [the voices] were soft and combined with the guitar in the songs, it made me feel as if I was in heaven... I could listen to it all day.'
