New radio promotions company Ghost launches in London

Radio pluggers Gregory Wells and Becky Richardson have joined forces to create a new radio promotions agency, Ghost.

Wells’ company, Plug Life, has merged with Richardson’s Paisley London to form Ghost, which will operate from a London headquarters.

Wells began his career at independent promotions company Peer Group and went on to run the radio department at Domino Records, working with Hot Chip, Jon Hopkins, Wild Beasts and more.

Subsequently he formed Plug Life and now represents a roster including Four Tet, Laura Marling, Neneh Cherry, Floating Points, Cigarettes After Sex and DJ Koze.

Richardson served at Island Records for four years and worked on campaigns for artists including Hozier, Childish Gambino, PJ Harvey, The Weeknd and more.

Launched in 2016, Paisley London has mastered national, specialist and community radio campaigns for a raft of acts that includes Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Dave, AlunaGeorge, Charlotte Day Wilson, Bruno Major and Ray Blk.

Richardson also works with several festival radio stations including Reading & Leeds and All Points East.

Becky Richardson said: “Teaming up with Greg was a no brainer. Our major and independent label experiences complement each other perfectly and our combined rosters present a pretty formidable line-up. I’m really looking forward to what we can achieve together with Ghost."

Wells added: “From the minute I met Becky I knew I wanted to work with her. Her drive for results and infectious personality have made her one of the best pluggers out there. By combining our rosters and experience, I believe Ghost can grow into one of the UK’s leading radio promotion companies."
