London Tone Music Group 52 x 52 Artist Celebration

First Listen: Born Of Ghosts – Torch

~ by Robin Fairbanks ~ Born Of Ghosts – Torch One of the benefits of working in this business is happening upon a new band by accident which was the case two years ago. I was at the High Dive to see a friend’s band and Born Of Ghosts was on the bill. Although formed in 2009, I thought the potential was there but the band needed to hone their act, write voraciously, and get into a solid studio for better recordings. A piece of advice to artists, stay in touch with Industry people. Give them a cd and let them know when there is any notable happening, changes, releases
