Fall into the warm, authentic songwriting of Ghostly Beard’s new album Inward

Some songwriters have the uncanny ability of building an affinity with their listeners within seconds. Montreal-based singer-songwriter Ghostly Beard is one of these artists.

With his warm, authentic tones, Ghostly Beard will walk his way into your heart and stay there as long as you let him.

A captivating listen from start to finish; Inward, the immersive new album from Montreal-based singer-songwriter Ghostly Beard will stick with you for weeks.

Melding elements of folk, rock, pop, jazz, indie and more, the Canadian singer has crafted a unique sound that belongs entirely to himself.

On his brilliant new album Inward, Ghostly Beard traverses through immersive storytelling and folk-infused, dreamy soundscapes to deliver a series of songs that are simultaneously mellow and adventurous.

Brimming with unbelievably infectious vocal melodies and rich instrumentation, the album is a captivating listen from start to finish.

Album opener How Does It Feel weaves acoustic guitars with glassy keyboard work to create a track that feels as though it’s swirling around your stomach, simmering in a repetitious, addictive groove.

Clocking in at just shy of eight minutes, 9 to 5 (Barely Alive) is the album’s most cinematic song… meditating on the working life with endearingly bright vocals and slightly unsettling piano tones.

By the time the punchy album closer Going Away fades out of existence, you’ll be left with the feeling that you’ve just heard something pretty special. And well, you have.

Do yourself a favour and listen to Inward above.
