Ghostwriter is the post-punk version of a self-accompanied singer-songwriter. Ghostwriter has toured the States for over fifteen years and released eight albums on End of the West records. Early on, Ghostwriter toured alongside Dex Romweber (Flat Duo Jets) and Th' Legendary Shack Shakers. After performing in festivals from Sleazefest in Chapel Hill to Not the Same Old Blues Crap in London, Ghostwriter was tapped to support icons like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and T-Model Ford. Known for his visceral songwriting and relentless live shows, Ghostwriter's DIY approach continues to scour the underbelly of American music.
Born and raised in central Oregon, Steve Schecter moved to Austin, TX. in 1996 where he formed and fronted Billy Swamp, The Standards (originally called American Standards), and End of the West. By 2002, Steve Schecter started recording and touring as Ghostwriter. After moving back to Oregon for a few years in the interim, Schecter is again living in Austin, TX. Ghostwriter's eighth full-length album String Noise and Dust is now available from End of the West. US tour dates in support of the new album are planned throughout 2018.
