I’m excited to share my new single, Sea in Me, the 4rd single from my forthcoming album (The Song I’ll Write for My Whole Life) with you all!
You can listen, save, download and like on all the usual streaming platforms.
I wrote Sea in Me after visiting the Giant Pacific Octopus at the Vancouver Aquarium. I wondered what it might be longing for…The wide open ocean, a lover, the inky depths. Musically, the song tries to capture the essence of the ocean & encourages a trance-like experience that takes you to unfathomable depths. The arrangement is lush & multi-layered to convey the complexity & the power of love & longing. The bass & synths reach back to the ‘80’s – inspired by The Cure, Eurthymics, Joy Division.
‘Sea in Me’ is lush and complex song. You can listen with headphones and be surprised to pick out little goodies. Musically this may be the best example of the effect that my current band is having on my music. Aaron clarified the chorus and made it stronger. Tony’s drumming is powerful but dynamic. Scott adds the essence of the deep sea on electric guitar. And, Ron starts the song with a synth-packed flourish and then adds seasick semitones in the middle 8. The chorus and the addition of the trombone and the choir send it over the top!
An official music video, created by Vancouver videographer R.d. Cane is available now on my YouTube channel.
