Clayton Lisy, also known as GHOSTLUVME, lost his mother and two sisters at a young age. As music was always his foundational creative outlet, it became for him a cathartic vessel of healing and reflection. He first fell in love with the sounds of music when he picked up a guitar at the age of ten. Born in Philadelphia and raised in Broward County, Florida, part of Lisy’s diverse taste in music can be attributed to having lived on both the East Coast and West Coast throughout his youth.
His latest album VIVA embodies that ethos. Mixed and mastered by Grammy Award winning super producer Zaytoven, Ghost is ambitious about his approach:
“Some of the sounds on this project are not hip hop, which made it a very different yet exciting project to make. It is a beautiful time for this kind of multi-genre music to come out, as we are showing people there is no linear way of doing anything.”
Poignant wordplay and unpredictable timbres being hallmarks, he’s released projects that defy the norms of traditional rap and pop— a rare melodic mutation that can only be classified as its own genre.
