Bio

Little Ghost is an Austin Texas based Alternative rock band. Influences among members vary widely from alt rock like Thrice to Wilco to Radiohead to hip-hop like P.O.S. and Yassin Bey to folk like Woodie Gutherie and Pete Seeger. "There are no rules or boxes for us, I dont like feel like I have to listen to a certain kind of music based on my region or outfit. I will listen to anything that has interesting melodies, rhythms or lyrics. Anything."-Socia. Little Ghost is currently recording at Birdhouse Studio in Austin Tx with engineer/producer Joe Beckham after a year of rehearsals and writing together. "We have been working on this project for a while, fleshing out songs and words, learning each others nuances. We all have day jobs or money gigs but this is our baby, we are all great friends and really love this project and each other, this is where we all want to be."-Socia. Robert Socia ,Singer/Guitar, is an Austin native and local music scene veteran, playing weekly shows in Austin since highschool. He has played for Ryan Bingham, Sunny Sweeny, James Hyland of the South Austin Jug Band and a host of other local bands. Andy Tindall was born with a fiddle in his hand, national fiddle competition competitor, turned bass player. He has played for a host of Texas based bands on instruments ranging from stand up bass to mandolin to guitar. He currently works as a sound engineer on the big stage for Nomad in Austin. Zach Noe grew up in collage station embeded in the local punk rock scene playing guitar and singing with several bands before moving to Austin along with Tindall and McDonald, his creative guitar playing sets the texture and mood of the songs. Ian McDonald grew up in Alvaredo Texas playing in the local hard rock and metal scene before moving to Austin texas, a large man with an even bigger kick drum, he forms the backbone of the band on drums. After forming and writing material, what came from this melting pot of influences is dark but hopeful, sometimes vaguely political songs that lyrically could pass as americana over an acoustic guitar, arrangements that are heavy enough to appease any fans of alt or heavier rock, while still maintaining enough melodic guitar passages and vocal melodies to add beauty to the abrasion.
