Excited to finally announce a project I’ve been keeping quiet the last several months...On August 7th I’ll be releasing a collaborative mini-LP with investigative journalist and author Ian Urbina. The album, entitled Under a Red Sky, is part of an ongoing series of releases inspired by and built around sounds collected for, his latest book, The Outlaw Ocean. The book investigates the ongoing atrocities of the open sea, including the fishing and shipping industries, profiling those directly affected on the way. It’s a heavy, but fascinating read, and has changed the way I think about the cost of convenience in my daily life. Many of those profiled in the book live in extremes, some never coming back to land for years in the fishing industry and are basically held captive - they have no health care, HR, or recourse for abuse. Slavery is alive and well in the ocean. How does this idea of blending music with journalism further promote the book and promote awareness of the content - can awareness of these atrocities bring pressure to local governments to go after these bad actors and allow for positive change?When Ian first reached out back in February, I was immediately captivated by the project. The idea of merging music with journalism wasn’t a concept I had ever considered, however, as an avid news junkie - I felt it was a natural fit. It’s been nothing short of an honour to be involved with this project, in addition to releasing this alongside artists who have inspired me for years, including Yoni Wolf / WHY?, Kettel, Christopher Willits, and Teen Daze.Expect some teasers to pop online over the next few weeks leading up to the release. In the meantime, check out the rest of the catalogue at theoutlawoceanmusic.com... ... See MoreSee Less
