Leap in Ocean


Behind the Music

There was no specific feeling I sought to convey in my tracks. Reading The Outlaw Ocean inspired me in so many ways, and that’s what I tried to emulate in my work. Journalism like Ian’s reporting helps us see reality and I believe that music is a universal language spoken through emotions. Both work to alert the public in different ways. What I strive to do with my work is create something that connects us all together and the essence of The Outlaw Ocean does just that.

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.
