Hi everyone, hope you are all doing ok during lockdown Excited to share something special with you all. I’ve wanted to put out a compilation album of live recordings over the years and finally I feel like now is a good moment to do so.
“Live & Contagious” (named with equal parts irony and respect to one of the coolest live albums of all time, ‘Live & Dangerous’ by Thin Lizzy) is a collection of live songs and covers performed by Sister Ghost between 2015 & 2020. It contains performances by all past and present members of my dear wee garage-punk, ‘love letter rock’ band.
I think that this is a nice way to look back on the good memories of gigs past, during a time when all artists who love to perform can no longer do so to the capacity that they once loved (in rooms packed with sweating people having fun!). Big hugs to Maeve, Stevie & Rory (this weekend we would have played Manchester & Liverpool for the first time together - I miss ya!) and thank you to Laura, Jake & Brian for the time they gave to this band as well.
Now is also a good time to raise awareness and support for others during a very strange and scary time. As such, all sales of this album will be donated to Foyle Women’s Aid, the local domestic abuse victim support charity in my area. Since the Coronavirus lockdown began, domestic abuse killings – including children – are thought to have more than doubled. Something needs to be done to make that no longer a reality for so many. Please give what you can (and if you purchase today you will be donating even more, as Bandcamp have waived their fees for the day).
Please enjoy this collection of songs & thanks to all the venues, audiences and engineers that made these recordings possible
Stay well & stay spooky - Shannon x
