about

Sea And Space invites you to join them on “The Journey”. Written and recorded in 2013 and 2014, it is a slick, polished and concise expression of the bands formation and intentions. Using a fabric layering technique the album’s singles become a conceptual voyage tied together by segues of sound effects, musical interludes, and speeches that complete their story. Heard from beginning to end, the listener is lead through a whole movement of dynamic songs and sounds that focus on the negative space of the instruments and vocals, as the band uses the burgeoning tension to build musical climaxes over and over again.

The instrumentation of the album is synthesizer laden, switching from classical piano to dirty organ sounds and everything otherworldly in between. Acoustic guitars juxtapose with their organic clean sounds, cutting through with their own voices creating melodic rhythms and feature parts.

Drums and bass are the tight fabric that supports the many layers of this electronic and acoustic combination. The bass is solid, fat, and round in tone. The parts are streamlined with simplicity, always ready to highlight a feature and engage the listener with an unpredictable run. Drums stay tight and minimal until the burst is necessary, using both electronic and acoustic drums elements to minimize sustain and maximize projection when called on.

Navigating time signatures and musical textures seamlessly the four instruments and their parts provide the body, while the story of “The Journey” is conducted by the vocal rhythms and melodies that are integral to the express the emotion of each song.

Whether a single voice or a choir of harmonies they tell the story that the listener wants to hear. The voice is sweet but certain and the lyrics - open to interpretation.

The band formed at Sunny Pine Studios. The members “Journey” into becoming Sea and Space merge the rich musical backgrounds of each individual to the personal stories of their relationships with each other over the span of many years. Finally intersecting in January of 2013 through inspiration and the common goal they share.

Track Name: Here Comes The Sun
Here comes the sun
Welcome it with open arms and open minds
Waves crashing all around
bringing me peace and warmth and light

Taking chances, wide-eyed and hopeful
Taking you hand, embrace and never ignore you again

Silence is beautiful
Only if you know how
Bringing joy
A tear and a smile to my face

Taking chances, wide-eyed and hopeful
Taking you hand, embrace and never ignore you again

So I embrace the beauty the silence and the power of alone
But I know now that I am in the right place to let you in and let you take over my soul
Let you take over my soul
Let you take over my soul

Taking chances, wide-eyed and hopeful
Taking you hand, embrace and never ignore you again

Here comes the sun
Here it comes
Track Name: Cruzin
Push outside through the window
Find yourself and let your spirit go
Don't wanna be forgotten don't wanna be left alone

Find yourself a new heart
Maybe one without so many holes
So than you can recognize
How the love should flow

And if you are my reflection
I've got no chance at all
And if you wanted my protection well baby
Just keep on standing strong

So than if you are transparent
How can your blinded eyes find the cure
I tried so hard to work it out in this life
Too bad you don't know whats in store

And so you say your my reflection
Well I've got no chance at all
And if you wanted my protection well baby
Just keep on standing strong

Push outside through the window
Find yourself and let your spirit go
Don't wanna be forgotten
Don't wanna be left alone
Find yourself a new heart
Maybe one without so many holes
So than you can recognize
How the love should flow

This is me channeling you
Letting you do the best that you can do
When that smile is gone
I'll be moving on
This is me not channeling you
This is me not channeling you
Track Name: Pseudo Bossa
What you need
This is perfect
You are exactly where you should be

Don't you see
More than anyone else
I'll know right where to go

Can I feel
Can I feel
Can I feel just this moment
All I need is for time to stand down just for once and awhile

In this time
I will listen
I'd love to hear those old stories

Then can we get lost in the moment
Close your eyes don't just be where you are

Don't you feel
Don't you feel
Don't you feel this whole moment
It is time, let's take time
So we can do this all over again

So can I
Feel what I want to
Rhythm and beauty the sound we create
I agree more than anyone else
In this moment we are

I can feel
I can feel
I can feel this whole moment
So I can hear what I want to
Beautiful signs coming to me
Track Name: One
Your eyes will see the words
That your lips cannot express
Time will tell you everything
And it's more than you expect

I wish to god there's something I can do
Only if you know home
Only if you know home

Oh won't you
Please know home

I see the frown upon your face
Those tears make lines no man could trace
I wish you'd answer when I call
Or be there to catch me when I fall
Won't you please know home
Oh won't you please know home
Oh won't you please know home

Oh won't you
Please know home

I stand there knocking hard
Just hoping you would call my name
I'm waiting for you to come to me
So then you would know home

I stand there knocking hard
Just hoping you would call my name
I'm waiting for you to come to me
So then you would know home

So then you would know home
So then you would know home
Track Name: Fives and Fours
Come in
Tell me something nice
I like ending my days
With your voice
With the sound of your voice

Why can't
We go home again
I don't wanna risk this
Please don't fade away

Come down
From there
The water is nice
Light air soft breeze
Floating into me
Floating into me

Carry this
Always with you
Hold on, to this last chance
To end this day complete

Why won't you know
I'm always with you
Come in come down
Now we can both see
Now we can both see

Come in
Tell me something nice
I like ending my days
With your voice
With the sound of your voice
With the sound of your voice
Track Name: The Journey
"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea. I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes and ships change. It's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt that exists in the ocean. and therefore we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears, we are tied to the ocean."
Remarks at the Dinner for the America's Cup Crews, September 14 1962
― John F. Kennedy

"The impact of this invention on the minds of men everywhere who are attempting to make a determination of which road they should take. We choose to go to the moon, not because it is easy but because it is hard. We examined where we are strong and where we are not. Where we may succeed and where we may not. It's time for this nation to take a clearly leading role in space achievement. It may hold the key to our future on earth. Because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept one we are unwilling to postpone and one we are willing to win. We go into space."
Rice Stadium, September 12, 1962
― John F. Kennedy
Track Name: Emily's Song
I've never felt so much love in one place, ever.
The place between both here and now
The place where there is warmth and embrace

Goodnight

What a necessary thing to have in life is the love a friend
It makes you feel invincible
It makes you feel like nothing else matters

Goodnight

Even though the sun begins to rise
Picture me with telescope eyes
Even though the sun begins to rise
Picture me with telescope eyes

Goodnight
Picture me with morning light
Goodnight
Picture me with morning light
Goodnight
