GHOST ROOM is an immersive theater piece where audiences conjure spirits and receive life advice from the dead. Ira Lawrence portrays a masked ghost interpreter and Siobhan O'loughlin is his supernatural spirit. GHOST ROOM was performed at the former Vanity Fair offices for the 2017 Chashama Gala. The video is directed by Cole Smothers and features "Lurking From The Sidelines" - the first single from Ira Lawrence's sophomore Haunted Mandolin album, YOUNG & PARANOID.
Check out the inaugural album Ira recorded, cowrote, and produced with Sion Edmonds (Bronze Age Boats UK) and some enormously talented 8-12 year old campers at Indian Head Camp via The Music Ascension program.
