Spookyghost is the name given to Gerry Leonards solo recordings and compositions. The name derives from the nickname given by Donal Coghlan (the other half of the duo Hinterland) regarding the ambient nature of Leonard's guitar playing. Leonard grew up in Dublin, Ireland. It rained a lot then. He left school and worked in a recording studio recording and mixing a lot of bands from the local Dublin scene. Highlights were recording a demo with Sinead O'Connor when she was 16 and giving the Edge a ride home in his tiny rusty Morris Minor Car.
