Today’s Daily Discovery is GHOSTS by ELLIS JOHNSON
Ellis Johnson is a singer/songwriter from Manchester, UK whose sultry acoustic pop, like an airy four on the floor drum beat wafting in on a summer breeze peppered with great hooks and mature lyrical themes, is the dictionary definition of meaningful feel good music.
Ellis got his rocknroll induction from his father, whose record collection of classic rock got him playing drums aged 11. A progression of musical influences from grunge to EDM, disco to funk and country to Latin music ensued, as well as a trials as a promising, young footballer. A raffle ticket bought by his mum at a charity event brought home a mic and a guitar. Ellis’s fate was sealed.
Ellis Johnson’s songs about the roller coasters of life and the ups and downs of everything are personal as well as fictional, and will feel at ease on playlists featuring artists such as Khalid, John Mayer, Gang of Youths, Elbow, Phoebe Bridgers, Maroon 5 and Train, to name but a few

The live industry has been decimated by Coronavirus, and the livelihoods of many musicians, venues, promoters, agents, managers, sound engineers, videographers and stage reps hang in the balance. Many of these individuals are freelancers, self-employed, or sustain themselves project-to-project, or gig-by-gig.
