Artist Interview: Ghost
Tell us about yourself and your music
I was born in Hungary so I get my inspiration from here. Most of the times I only see the sadness on the faces. You can see how these people are hopeless. Basically you can’t see smiles. That’s why my musuc is usually dark or sad.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release is called Drunk Santa. It’s a goofy sing about the Santa. I made fun of him because I wanted to.
What inspired you to write this release?
The beat. When I first heard the beat I knew I want to write a funny lyric. So I wrote down the things I could think of.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
No. I don’t see I hit the road any time soon.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
My accent. I try to use that as an advantage. As a Hungarian I see different problems. I have to deal with different drama and for some people it can be interesting. Also I’m not afraid to say what is in my mind. It can be politic or a person if I don’t like something or someone sooner or later I will write about them.
Who have you been listening to lately?
Eminem, N.W.A, 50 Cent
Tell us about your passions
Help people. Make them laugh and have a deep conversation with them.
What else is happening next in your world?
Everyday drama of course. I’m a person just like everyone else. I have bad days and good days but I’m lucky enough to have the ability to write these down so I don’t have to struggle to keep the problems in me.
Thanks for an awesome interview, László!
