I’ve always been enchanted by music. I’m mesmerized by the miracle of sound waves resonating naturally through the atmosphere and mysteriously working in harmony to draw out emotions in us all.
My latest work came together under a spell, in a truly majestic landscape on the coast of Marin. I set out with some of my best friends to focus and explore my current cultivation of songs with a new philosophy and an unfamiliar methodology. I chose the Panoramic House in Stinson Beach as the vessel to write and record the new Go By Ocean album Sun Machine.
I brought most of the songs in fresh so everyone worked on them with a first instinct kind of prospective. For me, Sun Machine reveals a new found path in life. An evolution of living with light rather than letting darkness lead the way. Like many of my lyrics, the album reflects on harder times with hope for greater days ahead.
Ring Around The Sun starts the record off with that exact sentiment and is an anthem proclaiming there’s still time to look on down that road to a better life. Participating in the light as opposed to checking out into darkness. We had a ball making this album with an amazing collection of hearts that resulted in a record I am very proud of.
My line up has changed over the years but our mission remains the same. To spread love through the art of music and hopefully give people the emotional responses we all share and find in the music we love the most.
This show will be held inside Smiley’s.
