Freaky Be Funky is an album broken into 3 chapters.  Part I is Protest Music, Part II is Porno Music and part III is Pyro music.  Musically it spans genres from Rock to Metal to Hip-Hop to Industrial, and of course a hefty dose of Funk!

Produced by myself and the unparalleled studio virtuoso Eric Hogg, this record was many years in the making for me, and it is easily the realest record I've ever produced. 

This is my heart and soul in 13 songs so crank it right the fuck up my friends.

Freak Out, No Fear

Yes here we go.

Ghosty Predicts the 2016 election!

Posted on Nov. 7, 2016

America has the best elections, folks!

Tremendous candidates, believe me. The media isn't a trainwreck (they are) and the primary wasn't rigged against Sanders (it was). 

That's just locker room talk, folks.  Big league.

Thank god this embarassing asshole of a dumpster fire trainwreck of an election is nearly fucking over.

Recording In Nashville!

Posted on Oct. 23, 2016

I've been working on a new Current Swell record with the fantastic Jacquire King and it has been a fantastic experience.

Jacquire and his team of engineers are absolutely world-class and I've had to amp up my game to keep up with their creativity and ruthless efficiency.  The iconic Blackbird studio in Nashville is the craziest studio I've had the pleasure of working in.

Heading to Vancouver soon to continue recording.  Stoked!

The Sell-Out Song Music Video!

Posted on Mar. 8, 2016

The $ell-Out $ong is a track from an old solo record of mine called Look on the Bright Side.

In the A.D.D. riddled depths of an MS Paint bender I randomly decided that now was the time to make an animated music video for the song.

It's an ode to all the creative, talented artists who do it for the love of music, and refuse to dumb it down or pop it up to try to make a quick buck.  Hope you dig it!


Welcome to!

Hi there! I'm Ghosty and this is my website.

Hypothetically this is the spot where you can come and check out all of the various projects that I'm involved in, including but not limited to: Current Swell, Funk Vigilante, Strange Birds and my solo project which I'm just in the process of firing up.

Trust me, bro!

Website is currently under construction so you might find a few broken links, 404's and other fun stuff. Consider them to be like easter eggs or something.

(Edit: Site is actually in decent shape now) is a one-stop destination if you want the latest news, tourdates, music and videos from any of the bands I play in. It's also great for stalking the ever-loving shit out of me.

Hope you dig it!

Turn on the radio...nah, fuck it, turn it off.

A talented gentleman by the name of Adam Lee at took the initiative to make videos of our show at Sugar!

They look and sound pretty sweet considering it's a single camera. The first video for Guerilla Radio is up now, hopefully we'll have the rest of the playlist up soon!

Strange Birds playing in Victoria!

Strange Birds of a Feather, the alternative punk-grunge-whatever band I play with, will be rockin a show at Upstairs Caberet this Sunday with our bestest friends Spaceboots!

Come one, come all. It's sure to be a night of inebriation and debauchery!

See you there!

Playing a festival with Jane's Addiction!

Posted on Jun. 4, 2015

Man, I freaked the fuck out when I heard this!

Current Swell will play Victoria's own Rock the Shores festival this month and Jane's Addiction is headlining.

Jane's Addiction has been my all-time favorite band (...i think) ever since I was a little punk (...i still am) so sharing a stage with them is an enourmous milestone for me as a musician.

I can only assume that the show will end with Perry and I having a massive bro-down, most likely under the influence of designer hallucinogens. We connect on such a deep, spiritual level that he asks me to join the band as there permanent bass player. Obviously I say yes, because I'm not in nearly enough bands as it is.

Hey, a fella can dream, right?
