Before The Ghosts Short Info

‘Without music, life would be a mistake.’ Friedrich Nietzsche

And so, a view of Before the Ghosts………..
A pseudonym for two musicians/songwriters Eugene O’Callaghan & Dave O’Keeffe, both hailing from Cork. Both musicians have a wide range of influences which include Iron and Wine, Tom McRae, Ben Harper, Bon Iver, Mississippi Delta, Josh Ritter, Ryan Adams, The Doors etc.
Their own music is based in the Alternative / Folk genre.

Having gigged together for a number of years, a collection of songs has been created along the way. From this in 2012 the duo decided to pull together ideas, melodies & lyrics culminating in their debut album ‘Maps’.

Their wide range of musical influences can be heard throughout the album. The opening track ‘Gone to Sea’ has a haunting, soulful quality. ‘For You’ is a delicate gem that stays with you long after the song is finished. ‘So Uninvited’ mixture of folk rock, ‘Maps Undone’ melody that will hook you.

These songs are complimented by ‘Maps Undone’ ‘Always’ ‘Jesus for Dinner’ ‘A year for voices’ ‘White Shadows’ & the album is beautifully finished by ‘Ground from which we grow’.
Having already played supports to the likes of Jack L, Paddy Casey, Ham Sandwich, The Proclaimers & Frightened Rabbit.
Before The Ghosts are undertaking their own journey
But the best way of describing this collection of songs… is to have a listen for yourself & enjoy.
