A Choir of Ghosts is James Auger who lives in Ramsele outside Sollefteå. There in the deep forests of northern Sweden he creates a kind of alt-country / ghost-america that can be described as a unique interpretation of the American folk music tradition. Now comes A Choir of Ghosts to the Jazz Kitchen scene!
James has been doing music in various ways since he was 11 years old and grew up in Port Mulgrave in England. But it is in the Ålandic interior that he has found peace to create the music he has always sought for. Right now he is writing on his debut album which will be released later this year.
2017 was the year when it began to gain momentum for A Choir of Ghosts. The single "Ester" became a viral hit and quickly reached nearly 200,000 streams on Spotify. After two European tours and even a few singles, yet another hit has been released, "Morning Light" which at the time of writing has over 700,000 spotify streams. Impressive figures for an artist who doesn't have any help with PR or even has released his debut album yet.
Although James Auger is the front person for A Choir of Ghosts, it is a band with experienced musicians from among others the band Pershagen.
