Chapel Hill, NC -- Rock and Sock Records recording artist, Tokyo Rosenthal, announced today that his new album, Ghosts will be released on January 18. This will be Rosenthal's latest studio album since the highly acclaimed Love Won Out which broke into four different music charts. Ghosts features the previously released single, Mister Tell Me Bout The Great Depression, the riveting, hard rocking tune that tells the tale of the present economic downturn. Also already getting attention and advance airplay is the bi-lingual ballad “Still She Thanks God." While Tokes genre is clearly Americana, his eclectic nature takes this record into some other neighborhoods such as jazz on the 5/4 track “Feelings Don't Know Any Age." And some listeners might feel Stephane Grappelli in the room while listening to “Goin On' Saturday." But country is theme of the day on the very western And Then You Sang. And dare we forget Tokes love of the Tex-Mex sound that he ventures back into on the title track, “Ghosts."

Rosenthal is joined once again by an all star lineup to accompany him on his original material and his own multi instrument recording. Featured artists include Al Perkins on pedal steel guitar, Chris Stamey on bass, Peter Holsapple on accordion, Bobby Britt on fiddle, Jim Steinberg on banjo, Tim Rae on drums and Lisa Lacheau on flute. Rosenthal chimes in on rhythm and lead guitar, piano, drums, harmonica and mandolin as well as all vocals. The album was produced by Rosenthal with additional production by Stamey.

'Ghosts' will be available at most on-line outlets including CD Baby, iTunes, HMV and Amazon.com. It will also have retail distribution via Dynasty Records in the US and Europe.

It was great to be back in the studio, especially with some of the great people I got to work with again and for the first time, said Rosenthal. Now I look forward to touring and playing my new material all around the world.

Tokes first tour behind 'Ghosts' will be in the Northeast US kicking off at the world famous and legendary music venue, The Bitter End, on February 10. This will followed with dates up the east coast to Boston and points north. In March Tokyo will embark on one of his patented radio station car tours beginning in his home territory of North and South Carolina and hitting clubs along the way too. After that I will go wherever they send me, likely to Texas and points west, Rosenthal added.

In late April Rosenthal returns to the UK where he just finished a successful two week tour. Also in the works is Rosenthals first tour of Scandinavia and Belgium. Joining Toke on tour will be lead guitarist and mandolin player Charlie Chamberlain.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
