Sentinel is an Indie-dream-pop duo based out of Seattle, Washington. Originating from San Francisco, California, the seeds of this sunny-seaside-dream-pop began between Tarabud (vocals/bass) and Dennis Bestafka (guitars) on a four track recorder in 2000. Their live performances have been numerable over the years, with the support of friends on drums and keyboards. They have been heard on FM Radio: (Live105.3FM), (Nic Harcourt's syndicated program 'Connections Made by Guitar Center' broadcast nationally on FM stations in the USA) & (College radio in 160 stations across US and Canada), Local TV, and Live Music venues of the Northern California.

Strongly influenced by their mutual visions of 80's synth pop and 90's dream pop, the likes of Cocteau Twins / Smiths / U2 / My Bloody Valentine / Cure / Flock Of Seagulls / Ocean Blue, they easily shared in the creative process together. Over the years their catalog has been expansive with variety, delving into moods and textures to mold their sound. The following albums were self released: Sentinel (self titled) - 2004; The Singles - 2005; Sequels & Hunches E.P. - 2007, Kites Without Strings - 2008, For Days Deep & video - 2009, Jet Black Single & video - 2010, Dark End single- 2011, Somewhere Else Single & video - 2012, and Points of Light, released in 2015. New E.P. coming in 2018.
