Esteemed British singer-songwriter, James Walsh, of the acclaimed Starsailor fame, is poised to unveil his latest emotive ballad, "The Ghost In Me". An anthem of human vulnerability and the hope that a new dawn brings, the track grapples with the arduous task of offering solace in bleak moments. Reflecting on the song, Walsh eloquently stated, "It's about the restorative power of a new day. Sometimes songs take time to embed in a live set, but this one has quickly resonated.”
Delving into Walsh's illustrious musical journey, one can trace the roots back to Starsailor’s meteoric rise. Their debut masterpiece 'Love is Here' and the subsequent 'Silence is Easy', charted #2 on the UK charts, heralding an era of melodic brilliance. Having shared stages with titans like The Rolling Stones and U2, Starsailor's legacy in music is firmly established.
Yet, Walsh isn’t just about Starsailor. His solo odyssey began in 2014 with Turning Point, an album echoing his evolving artistry, seamlessly weaving classic compositions around simple chords. Further enriching his solo legacy is Tiger On The Bridge, recorded live at London’s RAK Studios. This album not only added to his repertoire but also accentuated the profound bond between the artist and his audience.
Collaborations with industry stalwarts like Suzanne Vega and Professor Green show off Walsh's versatile finesse. Now, as "The Ghost In Me" prepares to enchant listeners, it solidifies James Walsh's standing as a beacon of emotive storytelling and melody in contemporary music.
