Ghost Prom – Sunset Yesterday
Ghost Prom is a duo from New York City by Cameron Crosby and his significant other, Eden Brolin.

Cameron Crosby is also an actor, staring in Cake Day, a film where his character struggles with addiction.
Sunset Yesterday is their debut single, a personal song about the loss of Cameron’s close friend. He wrote on Instagram, “It’s about the truest of friendship. never being uncomfortable in silence with each other. our silence together carrying more weight than any words ever could. A lifetime of friendship builds layers of behavior that collect and get deeper as time passes from here to eternity. whether you’re in this planet or not, it comes through in signs, metaphors, and images. it helps me truly engage with the world when my eyes, ears, and heart are open writhing for them to show.” Cameron shared more about silence, “when you really know a person, they don’t have to say shit, you can sit in silence but they still get you. That’s true love.”

Flour Girl will be on his next EP, Romance At A Distance, which Webster recorded with Erik Groysman (you can hear Erik’s production on KARMINA’s cover of Wonder in the 2017 film Wonder).

Challenging but fun!” This is a beautiful song that Dennis Sjöström of The Hollow Men wrote with Francis Moon wrote together.
