Jessicas Ghost is a popular originals and covers band based in Merseyside, performing a superb mix of pop and rock with a dash of folk thrown in too. The band gigs regularly on the North West live music scene and is in demand for festivals and corporate function, party and wedding entertainment too.

The Jessicas Ghost story began in 2005 when Merseyside singer-songwriter Emma Thorbinson (then Longworth) decided to embark on a new live music project. First on board was Wirral-based bassist Ian "Moxy" Moxham, soon to be followed by a multitude of talented musicians on instruments ranging from cello to accordion.

Over the years to follow, as the line-up changed and the band found its feet, it worked tirelessly on its song-writing style, superb musicianship and its renowned performance energy. The culmination of this hard work came in 2009 with the release of Jessicas Ghost's alt-folk debut album, The Winning Hand, and performances throughout the UK and in Europe.

By 2011, all of the current line-up were in place, Em and Moxy having been joined by drummer Dave Thorbinson, Christopher "R-Chris" Shaw on electric guitar, and Craig Smith on keyboards.

With the new additions, a new rockier, more commercial sound was starting to emerge, and Jessicas Ghost were deep into another collaboration with producer Richard J L Smith, working hard on an aptly named follow up to The Winning Hand: the rockier Losing Track of Time LP was almost three years in the making upon its release in October 2012!

Much of the delay to the release of Losing Track of Time was a result of a busy gig schedule following the success of the first album. It seems the wait for the second was worthwhile though, the record enjoying a warm reception in the music press, and the band's gig schedule becoming even busier!

With two successful original albums, work underway for a third record, and a repertoire of covers now totaling in excess of three hours of music, Jessicas Ghost has gone from strength to strength in recent years. As well as performances at the original music venues in which Jessicas Ghost honed it's skills and, indeed, made it's name, the band now has a busy schedule of public and private covers gigs across the North West, and increasingly high-profile bookings including corporate entertainment for large companies like Talk Talk and support slots with artists ranging from Paloma Faith to Pixie Lott.

It is no surprise, then, to hear that Jessicas Ghost has become one of the North West's must-see bands. As Liverpool Sound & Vision put it in a recent gig review, "some bands should never be left too long before you visit and fall in love with them".
