Behind the Music

Journalism has played a crucial role in my journey as a musician — it’s helped me connect to the world as I deliver messages and stories through my songs to listeners across the globe. Works like Ian’s reporting are incredibly worthwhile to me, and worth the effort of reading and understanding. 

We all have our songs that represent specific moments or feelings in our lives. I hope I can do the same with the stories of The Outlaw Ocean, capturing every day emotions by emulating those that myself and those close to me experience. I want people to listen to these songs and read Ian’s book and have a clear interpretation about the lawlessness of the ocean.

The Journalism behind the Music

All music in this project is based on The Outlaw Ocean, a New York Times Best-Selling book by Ian Urbina that chronicles lawlessness at sea around the world. This reporting touches on a diversity of abuses ranging from illegal and overfishing, arms trafficking at sea, human slavery, gun running, intentional dumping, murder of stowaways, thievery of ships and other topics.
