about

Hall of Ghosts reside off rock's beaten track - a musical backroad steeped in folky, occasionally haunting cinematic pop and rootsy Americana.

Singer/songwriter Jim Williams, a Shropshire (UK) based musician and producer, launched Hall of Ghosts as a solo act after several years fronting the Alt. Country band Additional Moog, who released two critically well-received albums ; "Thirty Three & A Third" and "Endless Air".

“A Random Quiet” - an eight song album – plays out as a meandering, musical road trip with love, loss and longing the album's prevailing central themes.

Hall of Ghosts' musical influences such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Band and Neil Young are hinted at across the album, but rarely made explicit. Indeed, "A Random Quiet" is the work of a songwriter forging his own, individual style and sound.

Apart from some location overdubs in Scotland where the famous Old Blacksmith's – normally used for wedding ceremonies – was converted into an ad hoc studio, recording was a relaxed
affair at Hall of Ghosts' home studio.

This allowed for attention to detail during the mix process. Mastering was handled by award winning engineer Bob Katz at his studio in Florida (US) who shared Jim's approach of keeping the album's dynamics as intact as possible – a far cry from the overcompressed, harsh and fatiguing sounds of many contemporary releases.

The 24 bit FLAC edition of "A Random Quiet" is the best way to hear the album.

Jim plays electric and acoustic guitars, bass, keyboards and percussion on the album with several songs composed on the piano. Pedal steel flourishes were added by British steel guitar luminary
Gerry Hogan.

Jim will play an acoustic set as he unveils Hall of Ghosts on tour in spring 2012, opening several shows as a guest of Albert Lee and his band Hogan's Heroes throughout Britain, Northern Ireland and Europe.
