Our Storytellers


Cold Ghost is the moniker for Gold Coast songwriter, sound designer and multi-instrumentalist Fletcher Babb.

His 2018 debut album, Bachelor Tapes is a mix of alt-folk, rock and psychedelia, while being saturated in analogue tape and peppered with sonic surprises.

Completely deaf in one ear due to childhood mumps, Fletch has created a feast for the senses in stereo by manually manipulating his own mono experience. The album was nominated for Release of the Year in the Gold Coast Music Awards in 2019.

Originally a jazz-trained flautist from Western Australia, Fletch released three independent alt-folk albums under his own name in his hometown of Perth before heading “over East” with his young family in 2011.

A proud Gold Coaster now, Fletch is busy writing, recording and producing a new album for 2020.
