A project focussed on the 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.

Latest Collections

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.

Beautiful Songwriting

The fourth volume in our Beautiful Songwriting series - the first released this year - features tracks by; Molly Pinto Madigan / Chris Hartt / Rosemary & Garlic / All The King's Daughters / Jillian Kay / Aisha Badru / Rosie Caldecott / Jessica Flamand / Blackbird Peregrine / Alanna Eileen / Tanner Swift.

Alt-Melodies

Latest: Vol. 4 (008)

Oneiric Escapism

Latest: Vol. 1 (007)
Quiet and loud, sparse and busy, electronic and experimental, the Oneiric Escapism series is a mix of atmospheric delights, each of its tracks - and the records they come from - capable of transporting the listener into another time or place. Perhaps even both.

Latest Interviews

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.

Getting To Know #07
Published: 22nd July 2015
I think it’s really important to be good friends as well; not just colleagues.

Alanna Eileen

Getting To Know #06
Published: 8th July 2015
I’m probably most fascinated by human relationships, simply because I find them confusing. I’m quite a shy person and quite introverted, so I often find it difficult to understand people.

Kind Words

'It’s [Oneiric Escapism Vol. 1] the same kind of escape I find when I listen to This Will Destroy You, or Cliff Martinez’ Drive soundtrack, and the compilation is just as well selected as the latter, at times quite similar to one of my favourite film scores.'

- Craig Reviews Music (Feb 2015)

'The Beautiful Songwriting collections are a refreshing glimpse into the diverse artistry of singer/songwriters gracing today’s music industry...'

- Aura 32 (January 2015)

'... the Beautiful Songwriting compilation is well worth a look as well, especially if you’re a fan of slow, haunting, mostly-acoustic tracks that rely mainly on a great voice above all else. Normally I’d consider ‘beautiful’ in a compilation title a possible over exaggeration, but it’s wholly fitting in this case...'

- Craig Reviews Music (March 2014)

'... this [Alt/Punk Vol. 2] is a compilation put together for the love of it and it shows.'

- Scene Better Days (April 2014)

'... this album [Alt/Punk Vol. 2] is overgrown with excellent new music. If you like punk rock in any capacity, A Lonely Ghost Burning's Alt/Punk will serve well.'

- Project Burnt (March 2014)

'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.'

- Endeavour (December 2014)
