Behind the Music

While The Outlaw Ocean is full of chaos and turmoil on the high seas, I want to bring a contrasting sense of serenity and calm with my tracks — the eye in the middle of a hurricane, if you will. As a lo-fi hip-hop musician, I gravitate towards creating music that isn’t just enjoyable in sound, but that also evokes peaceful feelings in a listener.

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.
