Waves can always come back to the same ocean, but they will never be the exact same wave. Singer-songwriter oceanfromtheblue’s music is just like so. Also formerly known as Ocean, he creates music that evolves as the seasons pass by in his life and echoes the depth of humans’ emotions, like the ocean. To him, making music allows him to record all his life experiences down with his voice.
From recounting his urge to leave behind his depressive past in his ‘Take Off’ EP to a heartfelt album with words he wished to say to his loved ones as tracks in his “Messages” EP, his songs are filled with sincerity while staying true to his alluring sound. By incorporating these relatable life experiences into his songwriting process, he also hopes that others can empathise and receive comfort through his music.
