ocean music's wake: three songs

Ocean Music is a four-piece band hailing from both American Coasts. Born as the solo songwriting project of New York-based multidisciplinary artist and healer Richard Aufrichtig, Ocean Music has since evolved into into a raucous live band that delivers a blustering maelstrom which has been described by music critics as “an explosive update on Replacements-Pixies-Van Morrison" and "full of cathedreal beauty." 

 The intimate songs of Ocean Music’s first two records—self-titled (2014) and Songs From the City (2016)—have come to occupy a more expansive musical universe composed of pulsating rhythms, crashing waves of guitars, and warbling synthesizers that manage to turn the acoustic elegies of a lone troubadour into full-throated rhapsody.

Alex contributes drums to Wake: Three Songs. Ocean Music's first full-length album featuring Alex will be released 2018.
