After his sudden takeover of the airwaves with first single Cash And Carry Me Home in 2011, followed swiftly by his Mercury Music Prize nominated debut album Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, Obaro Ejimiwe has been steadily building his fan base.

He’s known for his unique voice, smooth rhymes and lethargic tone, but his style has actually changed a lot between releasing that first album and his latest, June's Shedding Skin.

His sound has developed into something more sophisticated, deeper and more confident. Gone are the plaintive sighs, replaced with smooth, laid-back rhymes.

His on-stage persona was more confident too – in front of a mid-afternoon crowd, he was relaxed but very self-possessed.

The title track from Shedding Skin was a live triumph, building into a jazz-influenced crescendo.

Overlooking the warm festival site and the hundreds of festival goers waving their hands or picnicking on the glass, Ghostpoet was comfortable and seemed at home.

Though his older songs were best suited for either the night-time or a hungover morning, the new material was perfect for a lazy, casual afternoon.

His live band were fantastic and he interacted with them consistently; though he’s technically a solo act, this performance was balanced and rounded.
