On Friday, Ghost Light released their long-awaited debut studio album, Best Kept Secrets. The album has been in the works for the better part of two years. In their time on the road since work on the project began, Ghost Light has become one of the most exciting and in-demand live bands on the circuit.
The same night, Ghost Light played the third show of their spring tour at St. Paul, MN’s Turf Club. Friday’s performance was nearly a year to the date from the band’s first show ever, back on March 20th, 2018. Throughout their two-set show, the band delivered their new album in its entirety, with other regularly played material from their repertoire woven in the setlist. Luckily for fans, there’s a fantastic audio recording of Friday’s St. Paul show that you can listen to below, as well as some great photos courtesy of photographer Jeffery Bowling.
