Open Letter From A Ghost

Deep Ellum Hearst

Dear Readers, For months, I was planning an announcement. Life factors were creating a burnout of sorts, which caused a dramatic reduction in posts, radio shows, and GOBL events. Even my plans for the 5th Annual Ghosty Awards did not come to fruition. I felt it was time retire as The Ghost. I was working […]

Ghosty Voting Is Open!

voting booths

Just a little announcement that voting for the 4th Annual Ghosty Awards has begun.  Just click on the above section that says Ghosty Voting (appropriately enough).  You can vote once per day; any votes beyond that will be discounted.  Results will be announced Wednesday, November 21st at the Ghosty Awards ceremony.  I’ll share more details […]

World Mental Health Day 2017

Mental health: those two words have been thrown around a bit the past few weeks.  The news media tosses those words out every time there is a mass shooting like the one last week in Las Vegas.  The problem is that unless the public’s attention span significantly increases, or there are more such tragedies, the […]

Thoughts on the 2017 Dallas Observer ...

The Ghost has always maintained a soft spot in his heart for awards shows. While I have enjoyed major televised events like The Grammys and The Academy Awards, the Dallas Observer Music Awards have always held a truly special place in my musical heart of hearts. Perhaps it’s the fact that it celebrates talent that […]

Press Release: The 2nd Annual Ghosty ...


The following is The Ghost’s press release for The 2nd Annual Ghosty Awards.  In an unusually rare move, The Ghost is mentioning his personal identity on the site.  The Ghost is, however, omitting the more personal details from the press release like the phone number.  It is, however, given in the actual press release that […]

Are You There Dallas? It’s Me, ...


Dallas, I have something to confess. I’m going through a crisis of faith regarding you as of late. While these feelings have been present for a long while, hearing the news regarding Jeff Gage has brought it to a point where I can no longer stay silent on the issue. This comes after the Dallas […]

Helping Hand

Bravo Hand 1

For the past nine years, The Ghost has been working hard to help promote the great music both in the DFW area and throughout this state.  This is a project I have taken on single-handedly.  While it has always been a challenge, I have mostly been able to do the work/blog juggle.  Lately, however, I […]

The Ghost Is Going to Bandcamp


First, let me say that I feel a little awkward sharing this upcoming post after the tragic events in Dallas last night.  The Ghost’s heart goes out to the family and friends of the officers who lost their lives in the line of duty.  My heart is still heavy, as I’m sure yours is too. […]

Spreading the Love This Music Monday


At its best, the local music community can be a truly nurturing and supportive environment.  I’ve met a number of fabulous people in this community that are genuinely concerned with helping others in the challenges faced being a musician.  As its worst, however, there can be a clique like quality that makes you feel like […]

New Year’s Revolutions: Part II...


This edition of the New Year’s Revolutions posts is admittedly more self-promoting than the others.  Before 2016 began, however, I made a decision that there would be at minimum of one GOBL sponsored show each month this year. How am I doing on my resolution, or should I say revolution?  Well, as you know, I’ve […]
