Ghost Writerz are producer Harry Metcalfe and vocalist (and producer) Jason Bradshaw. Pioneers of the UK’s very own Sound System Music, GWz create supernatural, soaring bass music infused with conscious lyricism, melodic hooks and virtuoso live instrumentation. Many will also know Bradshaw from his Jimmy Screech days which saw him tour internationally in Roots Manuva’s Banana Klan and earn acclaim for his solo LPs from Capital Xtra to The Independent and The Guardian. Metcalfe – who grew up playing guitar in bands before becoming entranced by reggae, soul and bass – had also been making solo waves as Sleepy Time Ghost.
The pair instantly connected on a musical and personal level, each with a passionate ethos to push the sound forward. “We started work together just before Christmas 2012 and carried on working religiously every Friday throughout 2013,” Jimmy recalls. “By the following Christmas we had written around 30 songs and the Ghost Writerz was born.”
Their first single released on Tru Thoughts was “Back It Up” in 2014. The track received upfront support from the likes of Ras Kwame on Capital Xtra and Toddla T, B Traits, Monki, Mistajam and Charlie Sloth. Two more singles, “How We Living” and “For The Love” were released on the label throughout 2015. Their debut album ‘GWz All The Way’ followed soon after, released on Tru Thoughts in July 2015. GWz released their most recent single “They Wanna Know” in 2017.
