In 2010, Jimmy started to slowly create something that told a humble story - "Chasing Ghosts".
2011 saw the release of Chasing Ghosts’ debut solo record "Confessions from a Phone Booth" working with US Producer Andy Beck. A raw album free of all digital bells and whistles, lyrically driven and featuring the iconic tones of Nashville regular Bill Chambers, ARIA Hall of Famer Robbie Suitor and guest appearance of Southern Metal sensation Tyron Ross of Mourning Tide.
The days of being packed into tour vans for hours on end had dramatically changed and an introduction to isolated airport living in all corners of the Nation quickly followed. A tireless work ethic and a vigorous touring schedule saw Chasing Ghosts in Australia and New Zealand, making Festival appearances alongside Neil Finn, After The Fall, Sarah Blasko, The Young Heretics, Ash Grunwald, The Almost (USA) Reliant K (USA), Avalanche City (NZ) and the Chariot (USA).
Support slots with US artists Kenny Vasoli of Emo/Punk kids the "Starting Line" to Keyboard Mosh darlings House Vs Hurricane are another testament of Chasing Ghosts' diversity and ability to tell a timeless story of life experiences and hope to any audience.
Off the back of a National tour with Canadian Post Hardcore monster Sights and Sounds (featuring Andrew Neufield of Comeback Kid), Chasing Ghosts continues to build a loyal fan base one show at a time, a story at a time.
This is the start of a brilliant journey for an older kind of soul and an exciting new talent.
For lovers and listeners of Chuck Ragan's solo work, Brian Fallon and City and Colour.
