Elijah Ocean
Elijah Ocean
It’s twenty-nineteen in the southwestern corner of America. There’s snow in the distant mountains and the slow desert sunset creeps through the windshield of the Mercury on 40 West. The young man is driving home, wherever that is.

Elijah Ocean is a singer/songwriter setting up to release his fifth full-length record. Whether performing in a stripped-down acoustic setting or with his hot honky tonk band, he consistently captures audiences country-wide. Ocean always finds a common thread with his warm voice, catchy melodies, and smart storytelling.

He was born in a small woodland house in the Hudson Valley, raised in rural Maine, and enlightened by time spent in New York City. He’s landed in Los Angeles for now, where the Sunset Strip is a wasteland, Silverlake has peaked, and the spirit of Laurel Canyon echoes through the hills of Highland Park. The end of the world is a damn inspirational place to be.

He writes and records. The hard work shines through in his craft without a scrap of it being over-thought. It’s American music. It’s conceived on highways between cities past their prime. It’s born from memories and dreams of fresh starts. There’s rich history to draw from in Nashville, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Bakersfield and Austin, but he doesn’t desire a repeat. He celebrates the richness of a multi-generational record collection while adding a fresh voice to the conversation, and the music is new.

Listen up.

Every year Elijah Ocean crisscrosses the country singing his songs and making memories. With four full-length LPs under his belt and a fifth in the chamber, Ocean is just hitting his stride.

For now there’s a much-needed diner booth in Needles on 66. Welcome to California. Set your clocks.

Sometimes it takes a couple turns round the yard to fully realize your potential. Andy Hamilton grew up with an appreciation for country greats such as Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Conway Twitty. But it wasn't till 2014 he decided to throw his hat into the ring and put together his own country band.
Comprised of Colorado and Wyoming musicians, the Rocky Mountain Contraband incorporates a traditional lineup with guitar, pedal steel and fiddle at the forefront.
