Little Ghost is the performing moniker of Dustin Sendejas. He makes music that is folk at its core, layered with crystalline piano, harmonic guitar, and melodic movements reminiscent of Dustin Sendejas’ Midwestern emo roots. He spent his formative years touring the USA leading and fortifying a variety of bands.
With 2021 underway, Little Ghost sojourned to Minneapolis to collaborate with producer Steffen Prentiss Yazvac, resulting in a batch of fresh singles. The newest title “Feel Nothing” belies an encouraging message and features a jaunty, upbeat rhythm. “Best and Brightest” highlights Sendejas’ smooth countertenor and one of Little Ghost’s primary strengths; precision guitar playing. The collaboration with Yazvac yields found grooves and expanded vocal dynamism.
Little Ghost emerged in 2018 with the ep Beneath the Surface featuring the lovely “Taipei” which opened a valve for new material to flow through. 2019’s “Mother Warned You” and The Dark crystallized Little Ghost’s signature sound. Euriah’s Eric Stanley produced these releases along with 2020’s “Little Ghost Notes,” a repurposing of John Davey’s “Ghost Notes”.
After Sendejas spent 2022 on guitar with Triple Crown Records artist Adjy, Little Ghost released a two song ep entitled Night Sky in August 2023. The songs maintain the same melodic focus, but display a broader range of textures, incorporating more present percussion, trumpet, and prominent female harmonies.
