Independently released in September 2010 'Charity & Ghosts' was described by PBS FM as "a perfect song".

This video was written and produced by The Stillsons, and was directed by Jonathan Burton and Alex Joseski. It tells the story of a former British child-migrant, who after hearing Kevin Rudd's apology to the 'Forgotten Australians' on Monday 16th November 2009, opens up his childhood suitcase that he's stowed away, to confront ghosts of his past. It prompts him to revisit Station Pier in Melbourne, where he arrived as a 'British child orphan'.

Around 150,000 children were sent from England to populate the Commonwealth (Canada, Australia, NZ and Zimbabwe). Many children were lied to about their adoptive status.

Iconic actor John Benton (The Castle) plays the now elderly victim, Cameron Davey the young boy.

This single comes from The Stillsons' critically acclaimed debut album 'Circus', released in April 2009, available on iTunes.
