Justin Stivers first meshed a lo-fi sound with hi-fi imagination first in Seattle, Washington. And after a stint recording and gigging in down the west coast, this multi-talented musician, composer and singer made his way to the hot-bed of music known as Brooklyn, New York. Now with 4 full LP’s and one EP under his belt, Stivers continues to meld countless layers of styles, genres, moods and dynamics to create a musical experience unlike any you’ve ever heard.
Often compared to Animal Collective, Neutral Milk Hotel, Brian Wilson and Built to Spill, in the studio, Justin Stivers’ Pet Ghost Project is a one-man sonic wrecking crew. He creates patterns, moods and waves of emotion through sound. He pushes barriers and knocks down the walls of traditional music. When he composes, he departs, isolates, and let's it all out layering sound upon sound into works of art that take the listener on a musical journey. On stage, he employs the help of multi-instrumental talents Justin Gonzales and Jake More to churn out a sound that’s a bit more raw, but nonetheless just as powerful, all of them taking turns playing percussion, guitar, bass, keyboards, to recreate the sounds that Mr. Stivers created.
