Obaro Ejimiwe’s meteoric rise continues with the release of the difficult second album ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’, which is thankfully gaining some promising reviews proving that 2011’s ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam’ was no flash in the pan. In the last two years Ghostpoet has played numerous festivals, supported Metronomy and Jamie Woon and been nominated for the 2011 Mercury Prize (losing out to PJ Harvey). With intelligent lyrical observation and genre spanning uncategorisable musical creativity, Ghostpoet has developed sounds not for everyone but those that will immerse themselves in his world will come up feeling fresher. Now Wave present his Manchester comeback show and it is sure to sell out so grab your tickets whilst you can.
Tue 28 May, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street West, Manchester M1 5WW. http://www.seetickets.com/event/ghostpoet/manchester-gorilla-manchester/696903 7.30pm, £11
