Ghost Medicine

Driven by a need to communicate the indescribable, and drawing on influences ranging from Vaughan Williams to Sigur Ros and Nick Drake, to Meshuggah, Discontinuance is the debut album from Ghost Medicine (the working name of virtuoso Georgia based guitarist and composer Jared Leach). Consisting of seven tracks that explore themes relating to the complex nature of human experience, Discontinuance is an astonishingly mature statement. Demonstrating a deep knowledge of alternate tunings and guitar effects, Leach's expressive guitar work alternates between sensitive layered finger picked acoustic guitars and fiery electric solos. Featuring drummer Scott Prian, bass player extraordinaire Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree/ORk/Tim Bowness) and additional vocals from Sarah Hoefer, Discontinuance is a superb introduction to a potentially major talent.
