Cydran (Danial) Started listening around the time of a friends death, so Ghost Stories has a very emotional effect on me, in all seriousness. It's a phenomenal album, highly recommend it! Mike, whatever happens, please don't go. <3 Favorite track: Ghost Stories.

Cartoon Violence These songs were amazing with just a Game Boy and a guitar, but they're even better with accordion! Favorite track: 1000 Hounds.

Curious Quail Like a Tom Waits ghost haunting a Gameboy that's lost at a Cthulu-infested sea, not buying this album is incorrect. Do the right thing. Favorite track: Brink of Madness.

Noukon A masterpiece of dark, folky chip music. Mike Ackman is the Tom Waits of lo-fi electronica. Favorite track: The Obstacle.

We are all haunted. By our pasts, our futures, our thoughts, and our anxieties. These are my ghosts. This album is an attempt at setting those ghosts free.

"Ghost Stories" was a project that spanned two years with a considerable amount of tweaking and adjustments. I am beyond pleased with the final results and have an unbelievable amount of respect and gratitude for the people that helped make it possible.

Morgan Tucker, thank you for being an amazing producer, inviting me to be a part of the 8BitSF community, and an equally awesome friend. Devin Nixon, you are a drumming powerhouse and thank you for all the percussion work both on the album and at our live shows. Shayne Plesa-Naden, thank you for being one of my best friends and an avid supporter of my music over the past 10 years, and thank you for helping me record demo versions of some of these years ago in Canada. Thank you: Brie
Spielmann, Caitlin Boring, Charlotte Koczera, Derek Moore, Eric Luhn, Jon Hwong, Jose Gallegos, Sebastien Ringuette, and Sunny Solomon for the song illustrations.

There are so many people that have been constant inspirations and have always been there for me that it would be impossible to list them all. I love all of you.

We all have our ghosts, we are all haunted. Let's all get spooky together.

--Mike Ackman
