In case you missed it yesterday, Dallas singer-songwriter Zach Balch was on Good Morning Texas, performing his song “Gettin’ Through to You”. I expected the performance to be good. I was wrong. It was absolutely incredible. Fans of Luke Wade need to check him out, as Mr. Balch is every bit as strong of a vocalist as the former Voice contestant. This song balances a simplistic folkish charm with a passionate, soulful plea that is executed flawlessly by Mr. Balch. Watch the video below, and if you feel so compelled, you can purchase his album, The Good Gets Better, on iTunes.

- This Is How I’m Celebrating Tur... — Nine years ago, I was thinking of how the local music scene was in such a low place. Trees, Gypsy Tea Room, and Club Clearview had shut down, and Deep Ellum was a ghost town. It was definitely a far cry from the early 2000’s, where venues (and the streets) were packed. It made me [...]
- Two for Your Attention: 7/19/16 — There may be an initial reaction of disappointment that there’s only two songs I’m bringing to your attention and not ten. Before you get too disappointed, let me say that I’d say both are pretty darn big deals in The Ghost’s book. I mean, maybe I’m wrong, maybe you think that the release of a [...]
- Sunday Spotify Sixteen Squared: Part ... — I suppose I can no longer say it’s a Sunday Spotify Sixteen, being Monday and all. Still, I wanted to share the remainder of these playlists with you. I’ll admit, these playlists were ordered alphabetically by artist. Normally, The Ghost prefers to order the songs in such a way that there’s an ebb and flow [...]
