Ghostemane is known for his unique fusion of hardcore punk and rap. Born in Florida, Ghostemane's real name is Eric Whitney. As a young person, Whitney played guitar and drums in punk and metal bands. Exposure to Memphis hip-hop changed his musical outlook and opened new avenues for his creativity. Ghostemane graduated from college with a degree in astrophysics and for a time, had a good-paying day job.
However, Whitney eventually abandoned that 9-to-5 life and relocated to Los Angeles. He realized there was a larger audience for his music on the West Coast than in Florida. Whitney grew up listening to hardcore punk and black metal. Lyrically, his music deals with the darker side of life, tackling themes like death, depression and nihilism.
Ghostemane is a prolific artist by any measure. He's released seven EPs and ten full-length albums between 2014 and 2018. Though none of these have received much airplay, Ghostemane has a small but devoted core of fans.
His live shows are intended to be intense and really make the audience feel involved. Ghostemane's experience in the punk scene has influenced his outlook on touring, particularly early in his career. This DIY ethic means that he is serious about taking his music to his fans, wherever they are. Moshpits and other forms of dancing are a big part of any Ghostemane concert.
