London-based singer­song­writer Obaro Ejimiwe adopted his Ghost­poet moniker for 2010 de­but EP The Sound Of Strangers. His word­play and late-night melodies earned a Mer­cury Prize nom­i­na­tion in 2011, for Peanut But­ter Blues & Melan­choly Jam. Some Say I So I Say Light fol­lowed in 2013. Ejimiwe is set to re­lease a third stu­dio LP in 2015, Shed­ding Skin, which finds him strip­ping his sound back to or­ganic in­stru­men­ta­tion and draw­ing from what he’s seen and heard to in­spire more en­light­en­ing verse.
