Toy Shop Ghost (Jim Connolly) makes surrealist art songs dusted with Americana. Jim began writing these story-songs in 2013.
In the following three years, Toy Shop Ghost recorded three albums of original tunes (Broadcasting Live, Art Plunk, Sparks Spread Wildfire ), and one album of reimagined 1920's and 30's songs with string quartet (Thrift Store).
Toy Shop Ghost has performed in Germany, Poland, Macedonia, Greece, and Mexico. Collaborators have included Anna Abbey, Peter Buck, Nate Birkey, Emily Hay, Austin Beede, Chris Symer, and Robinson Eikenberry. Current plans include a return to Germany and an album of duos recorded in restrooms and churches.
