Come See the Sunrise


Behind the Music

As artists we love any opportunity to collaborate and this particular partnership is unlike any other we’ve ever done. More than that, it’s a chance for us to make music that is a voice for change and can make an impact. Through this project our music is given the power to tell the stories of the ocean that are unheard and untold by the mainstream media. We can only wait in anticipation to see what stories Ian tells next.
