Lucky Ghost (aka Seth Berkowitz) will be a guest on the show this weekend Sunday, March 27, 2011 (2-4 pm ET), talking about his new LP "Sex Griddle" and spinning some of his favorite soundtrack music.
Seth Berkowitz, the singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist behind Lucky Ghost honed his approach as singer and frontman for the bombastic NYC rock outfit Conquistador, followed by the do-it-yourself experimentation of his first solo project, Aaron Hill & The Crimson Guard (where he served as both Mr. Hill as well as the Guard). What emerged was a distinctive voice - synthesizing prog, the sparkling sadness of 80's pop, chugging guitar rock and the slippery craft and lyrical aplomb of British singer-songwriters.
Always in evidence is the quality of songwriting and wide array of influences, realized live on stage with the help of guitarists Jed Livingston (The Couriers) & Mike Quoma (Balthrop, Alabama), drummer Chris Miller (Conquistador) and keyboardist Dave Stone (The Insteps).
"Seth Berkowitz gently prods commonly used genres and musical styles - There`s a brilliantly comical stance with grey and sentimental overtones... Sex Griddle is a Pop-fest, the layered synth hooks and bright bass lines are more than a quick fix to the quintessential three minute Pop song - Defined and danceable, the story unfolds." -Mojophenia
"Basically what we’re getting here is excellent power pop from a genuinely great songwriter. It becomes clear quite soon that he is one of the few contemporary artists that have the rare gift to write songs that are impossible to forget. Lucky Ghost have a pop sensibility not unlike that of the Cars back in the late Seventies and early Eighties, but tweak it just so that it makes sense for the new millennium." -Disagreement.net
