Manchester, United Kingdom (2005 – present)

Cherry Ghost is a British alt. country band. They formed in Manchester, UK in 2005 and enjoy considerable airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music. Their debut album, Thirst For Romance, entered the UK album charts at #7. Their new album, 3 years in the making entitled “Beneath This Burning Shoreline” was released in mid 2010. Lyrically the new album weaves narratives of revenge and loss, the spectre of hope and the triumph of spirit.

In 2008 the band won a prestigious Ivor Novello award for ‘People Help The People’, a recognition of Simon Aldred’s evocative songwriting.

The band have supported Amy Winehouse, Doves, Crowded House, and Smog

    If you like Cherry Ghost, you might like ambient lo-fi folk act The Noises We Make When No One Is Around. The debut ep is available on Bandcamp on September 29th but until then, you can listen via Soundcloud; Enjoy!

    Great new album. Many songs stand out straight away, others are slow burners

    Cherry Ghost tweeted on the 4th December: "Bath bound, album 3 in the bag by Xmas. The rest is out of my hands, you're going to need to badger the powers that be for a quick release." Why are we waiting..........

    Album news on the Cherry Ghost Twitter last night: "It's being recorded with Richard Hawley's producer and will be finished mid-Nov. It's all demoed and for me, is the most complete of the 3."

    v Without wishing to sound rude, if you listened to more than 642 artists you'd stand a better chance of hearing more British music that sounds like this. A good start would be the similar artists list, as they are usually fairly accurate.

    I'd like more British music if it sounded more like this!

    This band should be much more famous than they are...they should be right up there with Elbow and Doves. Fantasic band...and they're even better live!

    Can't believe they are under one million plays still. Simon's voice is incredible.
