My intentions with my music are to capture the variety of complexity found at sea. Everything is in constant movement, and I can’t settle for one single sound that would play throughout the whole EP. I always want to broaden my musical horizons and saw a chance to try out something different compared to my previous work. I’m hoping to take the listener on the journey of The Outlaw Ocean and create scenery which supports the content of the book.
