The Ghost and Pinky

Singer-songwriter, CB Ghost, and his Martin & Co acoustic/electric guitar are ready to make waves in the music scene with the recent release of his debut single, ‘Hollywood Hills’ along with the music video directed by and starring award-winning Australian actor and short filmmaker, Ben Corlett.

The enigmatic artist and former pro surfer steps out of his former rock singer role in the band 4Bolt to showcase his eclectic acoustic originals, with his full album Mayhemic slated for release on the Foghorn label distributed by MGM later in 2024.

CB’s unique singing style on ‘Hollywood Hills’, described by Sticky Fingers keyboardist Daniel ‘Crabs’ Neurath as having ‘some cool Shirley Strachan from Skyhooks vibes…’ may be in juxtaposition to the musical vibe some liken to early Jack Johnson, but for CB it’s Crabs take that’s humbled him, ‘Shirley was a legendary Aussie frontman gone too soon.’

CB Ghost is playing live on his upcoming gig with Pinky Ring – a band that brings hope to the regularness of life. Infectious stage energy with lyrics that cut through to the bone. The songs they have released so far have been praised worldwide and their live shows plug energy into art.

The two poetic lyricists and toe-tapping songwriters team up for the Double Dose Tour Extended following on from their recent north coast tour, where they played at venues such as: Mo’s Desert Club House, Gold Coast; Jacko’s Bar, Yamba; and Flow Bar, Old Bar.

Check out CB Ghost and Pinky Ring on Saturday from 7pm at The Rails.
